USS Indianapolis Survivors' Visit  
 
Earl Henry, Jr. never met his father, who was a dental officer aboard the USS Indianapolis and died when the ship was sunk. Henry, however, talked about how he — unlike most children of the men who died on the ship — knows a lot about the father he never met. His father was older than most aboard the boat, and had been an accomplished painter and was skilled in taxidermy, leaving behind vast amounts of his work. He was also a prolific writer, who sometimes sent as many as two letters home every day he was aboard the ship.
