Painting of USS DelawareKennard Wiggins
For a book project, I am trying to locate a Schmidt Painting titled USS Delaware.
My Great-Uncle, Rear Admiral John W. SchmidtNancy Fletcher Eaton
Uncle John was my grandmother's brother. He gave my father, his nephew, several sailing ship pen and ink drawings which are still in our family. I remember him as a gentle and kind man, one who paid attention to us and was interested in what we had to say even though my siblings and I were small children. I would love to know more about him and his artwork!

I am Adm. J.W. Schmidt's grandaughter and remember his studio in Cape Cod, MA from childhood. I know he sold many of his paintings throughout the 60's and 70's. He got sick in the late 70's and died inc 1981.
I have his log books and sale records and photo albums of all his paintings. I am curious where all of them have ended up.

I was Adm John Schmidts chief mate on his schooner the Grampus based in Osterville. I sailed with him from the time I was 12 yrs old until he passed away. He will always be my skipper. I have 3 pen and inks of paintings he did and my folks have 2 of his paintings. One a portrait of my mother and the other a painting of the t
"Temptation" winning the Edgartown race in the 1950's. Capt Delton Hall at the helm and my father Donald Gregson on the "coffee grinder".
John W, SchmidtJohn E Barry
John W. Schmidt was the CO of the NROTC at University of Pennsylvania in the late '50s or early '60s and the author of a series of books on ship handling that were published by the US Navy. He painted at least one picture of a scene aboard a sailing ship in action. He painted an excellent portrait of Chester Nimitz that I spotted at another website. Admiral Schmidt is a man of many talents.

paintings by John W SchmidtMare Rafferty
I have 4 ship paintings done by Rear Admiral John W Schmidt. In the early 1960's they hung in the Smithsonian Institute for a year, on loan from my parents. However, both of my parents have passed and I can find little or nothing about the paintings I have. They are named, but that is about all I have. Can anyone assist me in finding out information about these paintings?
