EA Students Sail Mooremack


A great number of students who sailed on Moore-McCormack Lines from the 1930s until the late 1960s attended American schools in South America.  The Escola Americana do Rio de Janeiro was one of them and this page is for those students who wish to contribute their memories.  If you attended EA and were on one of Mooremack's ships, either ocean liner or cargo liner, we invite you to send us your memories on Mooremack.
