my father,ex navy man of 25 yrs,cecil b. hatchel, was the chief electrician for maybe 25 yrs on treasure island,he used to hook up the large power generators which he pulled behind a tugger to each ship. he did all the other electrical jobs as required around the island. i used to spend summer days when school was out with him at work. i remember the large map of the world that was put in for the worlds fair.
he knew admiral nimitz who lived in an old home on yerba buena island.
i have an original picture of him signing a treaty with japan on a battle ship it seems. signed by chester cw nimitz. it says thanks for your efforts which made this scene possible. david hatchel
