Capt. Harry Spencer

My grandfather was a senior captain for the United Fruit Company during the 1930's and 40's. until he and his ship were "drafted" for WW II. He was the Captain for the maiden voyage of the "Peten" and, according to family history, was its captain after it was renamed "Jamaica". I am looking for earlier and later information about his employment with the Company.

There was a poem and picture of him in a company magazine where he was referred to as "Hurricane Harry"

Thank you for any help.
