Biographical Note / History In 1901 the Euterpe was sold to the Alaska Packers Association based in San Francisco. The Euterpe rigging was changed and fitted as a bark and began to ferry fisherman, cannery workers, coal, supplies and equipment from Oakland, California to Nushagak, Alaska in the Bering Sea. In 1906 the name of the Euterpe was changed to the Star of India to match the other vessels in the Alaska Packers Fleet. The Star of India made over 22 Alaskan voyages.
