Manny Harriman




Robert Charles DuPont shipped out when he was 14 years old. He was in the Spanish Civil War. He always told me, his daughter, that he received shrapnel in his head during this time. He did not serve in WWII but was shipping out through the National Maritime Union when I was a child. At one time he was an NMU official and was later expelled by Joseph Curran when I was approx. 10 years old. Our family moved to New Jersey and my father worked as an independent contractor for the rest of his life. Many years ago, my mother (now deceased) told me she had made a tape that was to go into the archives. I refer you to the archives for this link. My mother's name was Evelyn Friedman DuPont. She worked in the NMU. My father had a son, David DuPont, musician and silversmith. Robin DuPont (me), is a registered nurse and artist, married to Robert Hague. We have two children, Carol and Edwin Hague. There is one grandchild, Jessica Iaia DuPont.
