Cruiser Houston

The heavy cruiser USS Houston (CA-30), flagship of the U.S. Asiatic Fleet during World War II, fought bravely for her country during actions in the southwestern Pacific. On March 1, 1942, the Houston was sunk by the Japanese, and her surviving crew members were taken prisoner of war. This exhibit tells the story of the Houston and her crew through materials from the Cruiser Houston Collection at UH Libraries Special Collections.
