Plans twelve-year cruise

Here’s one last photo from the April 1 1936 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:


I couldn’t find anything on Mr. van Wagoner’s voyage. A search for his name yielded two ancestry web sites (here and here) listing someone with his name and the right birth date who lived in Los Angeles. If this is the same man, he eventually did marry; depending on which site you believe, he passed away in either 1951 or 1954. I guess this means that he either abandoned his journey or completed it.
