L.B. Jenson (1921 - 2005) joined the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) in 1938 and served with the RCN during the Second World War. During this time, he was promoted to lieutenant, and after the war he remained active in the RCN, training officers and commanding various ships. After retiring from the RCN he settled in Nova Scotia and returned to his interest in pen and ink drawing, illustrating a number of books, including "Vanishing Halifax", "Nova Scotia Sketchbook", "Saga of the Great Fishing Schooners", and "The Hats, Oilskins & Seaboots A Naval Journey, 1938-1945". In 2004, he was awarded the Order of Canada for services to maritime heritage.
