USS Cleveland CL-55 Reunion Association

M. Linwood Beck

Dear Mr. Brockett,

I stumbled across your site on the Cleveland on the web. My father, M. Linwood Beck, is the person who wrote the cruise book for the Cleveland. Papa died on March 21, 2007 at 93 years of age.

I know that I have a few letters he sent home while he was writing the cruise book and some stories about the Cleveland from his autobiography. I would be delighted to try to pull them together to share with you if they might be of interest to other members of the crew.

I know that Papa would be delighted to know that others still remember his book.

Happy Holidays!

Lane Beck
