The article partially reads, "Project Hope began in 1958 when President Dwight D. Eisenhower asked prominent heart specialist Dr. William B. Walsh to initiate a project aimed at international good will and understanding through personal contacts. Dr. Walsh then submitted the plan for the world's first peacetime hospital ship, a reconverted 15,000-ton veteran of World War II and the Korean conflict. The Consolation was refitted and rechristened the S.S. Hope."; See images #00134680 through #00134683 for all photos in this series.
