Join Park Ranger Joshua Bell from the Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park as he traces William Draper's remark- able journey around the Pacific, using works of art Draper created along the way. William Franklin Draper was named after his grandfather, the Civil War Veteran and U.S. Ambassador to Italy. William Draper, the younger, was slight and had a quiet bookishness about him. When the United States entered World War II he volun- teered his services as an artist and was eventually given a commis- sion as a Naval Reserve officer and served as a combat artist. His assignments took him to the Aleutian Islands, Hawaii, and the South Pacific.
