In World War II our dad, Jim as he was called, commanded the submarine Grunion. Early in the war we received a Western Union telegram stating that the Grunion had not been heard from and was assumed lost. For 65 years neither the US nor the Japanese had any idea of what happened. The state of the sub has been on the books as missing cause unknown for the entire time. Around 1992 we began an effort to determine what happened. That pursuit has had a stream of what we call improbables, twists and turns with almost inconceivable surprises and results, many dealing with things and events so unusual that they cannot be described with words. That effort has captured worldwide media attention being on the Today Show four times one of which won the Edward R Murrow award, an article in Readers Digest, heavy radio and nightly TV coverage, several hundred articles in local papers along with coverage in Japan and Europe. A neighbor put together a DVD on the effort, which won national honors. A book, Fatal Dive, has been written about our search. This annotated color photo album helps supplement the communicative difficulty of describing these unusual and bizarre events. Neither the book nor the photo supplement tells the entire story. The supplement, 90 pages and over 200 annotated photos provides a quick but less than complete understanding while the book, Fatal Dive explains the rather fascinating details of the story.

About the Author:

Bruce, the oldest of the three brothers has been coordinating this search effort for about 10 years, is the archivist of our extensive database of documents, photos and video, and the person you can blame for all errors and omissions found in this supplement. Brad, who passed away in 2008, started this effort in early 1990s putting together his research in a book we call the Jim Book. John, the youngest and the cofounder of the medical giant Boston Scientific, financed the effort and more importantly led the second trip that provided several hours of high-definition video of our dad’s imploded sub almost a mile below the surface at the tip of the Aleutians.
