1919 Wreck of J.A. Chanslor on South Oregon Coast Left 36 Dead Near Cape Blanco

(Port Orford, Oregon) – The sailing had been good so far along the Oregon coast and southward towards California, and even as conditions were shifting on the morning of December 18, 1919, the trip to San Francisco that the oil tanker J.A. Chanslor was making still seemed to be smooth around noon. Somewhere just after that, as a thick fog laid in, some unusually harsh currents took over and threw the nearly 5-ton vessel off course.
