‘Cover’ story: Oregon woman collects late father’s Navy relics
By Shanteé Woodards, September 29, 2014
Capt Richard Derickson’s hat is on its way to its family, at least for a little while.
Annapolis Maritime Antiques in Eastport had the Naval Academy graduate’s fore and aft styled hat, which hadn’t been issued since before World War II. The staff knew it belonged to a R.B. Derickson Jr., who died in 1992. Some research led them to his daughter, Dorothea Derickson, who now lives in Oregon. She returned to Annapolis last week to collect the hat.
