Summary expansion
As Commander in Chief, Pacific Fleet, Admiral Caperton was in charge of patrolling the east coast of South America aboard the USS Pittsburgh, to prevent encroachment by German raiders during World War I. His patrols also served a diplomatic function, as he often made visits of friendship to the countries of South America to develop goodwill between the United States and her allies. The album documents a luncheon hosted by the port directors of Montevideo at the Park Hotel on March 2, 1918, during one of these visits. A richly-decorated album, in an ornamental "coffer," was formally presented to Admiral Caperton for his wife on June 14, 1918. The facsimile album contains the texts, in English and Spanish, of the March luncheon speeches given by John A. Smith on behalf of the port directors, and by Admiral Caperton; a list of the names of guests attending the luncheon; and the comments of John A. Smith and Admiral Caperton at the June formal presentation of the album. The album also contains photographs of the USS Pittsburgh; of Admiral Caperton, his wife, and daughter, Miss Alice Caperton; the eleven members of the First Directorate of the Port of Montevideo; the hotel dining room where the luncheon was held; the facade of the Park Hotel; and a 5-panel photographic panorama of the Playa Ramirez, where the hotel is located. The album concludes with two photos of the presentation ceremony of the album, and three close-up photos of the album and accompanying box which were given to Lady Caperton
