United American Lines (Harriman Line) Passenger Lists

In June 1922, the Atlantic Mail Corp. was organized as a subsidiary of the American Ship & Commerce Corp., to operate the RESOLUTE and RELIANCE formerly owned by the Royal Holland Lloyd line. C. C. Wardlow, assistant to R. H. M. Robinson, president of the United American lines, has been made secretary and a director of the new organization

The United American lines begin a rival first class passenger service with Germany this summer and it was thought by W. A. Harrimann, chairman of the lines, that his coming position as a competitor required his withdrawal as joint manager of the government line.

For similar reasons, it is understood, the government is seeking to dispose of the operating agreement with the North German Lloyd Steamship line which the United States line inherited.

The Germany company also has started passenger services of its own to New York. The United States line has placed the new ship, LONE Star State, in the transatlantic service.

This summer (1922) many alterations will be made in the United Slates lines State ships so that a large number of immigrant passengers can be carried.

The United American Lines operated three passenger vessels of the third-class in the New York-Hamburg run. These were the Mount Clay, Mount Carroll and Mount Clinton.

Malman to Command the Resolute

The United American Lines announce that Daniel Malman, now master of the Mount Clay, has been assigned to the command of the new 20,000-ton passenger steamer Resolute, which was recently purchased by the American Ship & Commerce Corporation, along with her sister ship, the Reliance. In April these vessels will enter the service between New York and Hamburg, jointly maintained by the United American Lines and the Hamburg-American Line.

The appointment to the Resolute is a well-earned promotion for Captain Malman. He has followed the sea since early youth, his first experience being with the Arm of H. Troop & Sons, St. Johns. New Brunswick, owners of sailing vessels. While in their employ, he rose from the rank of ordinary seaman to master. In 1888, he joined the firm of W. R. Grace & Company and took charge of his first steamship.

From 1900 to 1912 he served with the American Line. In 1912 Captain Malman became associated with the American-Hawaiian Steamship Company and was in command of the Californian when she was torpedoed and sunk off the French coast in 1918. He became master of the Mount Clay In 1919.
