In March 2011 the Webmaster was contacted by Michael McKibben, grandson of Laurence Eddie McKibben. He send the following message:
After the passing of my grandparents I was given the family pictures they had to go through. I found about 50 pictures of the Kalinin Bay and its crew while at sea. Some while in Japan. My grandfather was on the ship for its entire service so the photos reflect its moods at times. If yourself or any other historians are interested I will share these pictures. Also, if any families of these brave men would like the pictures of their family members, I will provide them the original for free.
