Abstract

Wake Atoll, even though off of the main shipping lines between Hawaii and the Philippines or Hong Kong, had been a navigation hazard in the nineteenth century, largely because it was so isolated, so low lying and thus hard to see, and because its position had often been incorrectly reported. This paper details the early European history of the atoll and focuses on a shipwreck and the subsequent salvage events
