Manuscript diary, in a secretarial hand (or perhaps by Hutton's wife Marjorie Merriwether Post) but signed by each of the member of the travelling party, of a 1934 cruise of Edward F. Hutton's 320-foot yacht Hussar along Alaskan coastal waters to hunt bear, largely around the islands near Juneau. The party included Hutton, his wife and daughter, movie producer Hal Roach and wife Marguerite, Ernest H. Rice and wife Miriam, ‘war ace’ Dave McCullough, and others. Roach had lived in Valdez and Fairbanks for 2 years early in his career.
In all, besides good eating and drinking, deck games and other fun on board, the group saw 76 black bear and 59 brown bear on the excursion, even bringing a cub on board. The trip was cut short however, when McCullough was seriously wounded by one of the guides in a shooting accident.
