  4. 4. Credit Correction On 10 April 2007 USNA Classmate David M. Greathouse, Cdr, USN (Ret) sent the information below, found in two sources <ul><li>These images appear to be genuine, but not — as claimed in the accompanying text — all of them pictures taken by a sailor with a Brownie camera that remained undiscovered in a footlocker for many decades. The ship on which sailor supposedly served, the first USS Quapaw , wasn't even built until well after the attack on Pearl Harbor. </li></ul><ul><li>The USS QUAPAW ATF 110 ( Auxiliary Tug Fleet ) was built by the United Engineering Company of Alameda, California, her keel being laid on 28 December 1942, launched on 15 May 1943. </li></ul><ul><li>Most (if not all) of these images are readily identifiable as archival photos that have been available since the early 1940s and have appeared in countless articles and books about the Pearl Harbor attack. </li></ul><ul><li>I still consider the photos to be spectacular . </li></ul><ul><li>Donald A.
