William P. Frye


The four-masted bark William P. Frye was built by Arthur Sewall and Company in Bath, Maine in 1901, and named for the well-know Maine senator. Sunk by the crew of a German battle cruiser in January 1915, the William P. Frye was the first American merchant vessel lost to enemy action during Word War I. The painting is reproduced through the courtesy of the Maine Maritime Museum, Bath, Maine, and was a gift to the museum from the Samuel Sewall family.
