Holland America Line (N.A.S.M.)

The Historical Documents from the Holland America Line at the Archives is one of the most popular collections. The passenger lists and menus often have some of the most intricate, beautiful artwork - very elaborate and ornate covers that are treasured the world over. Our collection of passenger lists of the Holland America Line covers the first half of the twentieth century.

Visit the passenger lists that have been transcribed to view large images of their front and (some) back covers. You'll fall in love with history all over again.

Just in case you were wondering, the N.A.S.M. is an Acronym for Nederlandsch-Amerikaansche Stoomvaart Maatschappij.

STCA stands for Student Third Cabin Association - It offers a special Tourist Third Cabin on the Holland-America Line ships which was created by two Yale students in 1923. It differs from other Tourist Third Cabins in being maintained entirely for college people and those with whom they naturally associate. In addition to most congenial fellow passengers on the ocean, it offers cabins, decks and public rooms that were formerly second class on the steamers Rotterdam, New Amsterdam, Volendam, and Veendam, and remarkable Tourist Third Cabin accommodations on the new Holland-America Line flagship Statendam. The service on these vessels is all that could be desired, the food is first class, well prepared and simply served, and everything is kept scrupulously clean. Included with this passenger list is a photograph of Officer J. Munnik and two group photos (unidentified individuals) of the the STCA members who were on this voyage.
