According to [znk], author based on «Oslo, Norway».
Crampton’s dissertation was not published. The subject was the
German Flaggenstreit of the 1920s. It was submitted to Manchester
University, and accepted, but he was not able to expand it before
he died. We have some of his research notes and much of his research
material in the FI Library.

In 1935 William L. Crothers started employment in the Design
Division of the Philadelphia Navy Yard and joined the Philadelphia
Ship Model Society. These two maritime organizations formed his
life. In 1941 he started to produce plans for the use of ship model
makers, Sea Gull Plans. His interest in flag hoist signals and
house flags originated as part of the plan production process and
slowly found himself drawn to the subject of flag hoist signaling
in detail. Over the years he visited many museums along the east
coast of the United Sates ferreting out the far-flung information
that was tucked away in each facility. In 1996 he completed the
subject of house flags to the fullest extent that he was able. In
2001, the volumes were presented to Mystic Seaport Library in
order to insure that they would safely survive for posterity as
a convenient source of reference on the subject.
