Nantucket-Little Gray Lady 447 Here Old Whaling Captains Met and Spun Yarns of a Vanished Day Twenty-four skippers who had been around the Horn formed the Pacific Club and bought the old Rotch warehouse (page 446). Traditions of the club are carried on by their successors and associate members. On "Blanket-size" Sheets, the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror Prints Island News Harry B. Turner, the publisher, scans an issue just off the old press. The nine-column pages are 28 inches by 44 inches. Former Nantucketers scattered all over the United States read this paper (page 457).
