he made three trips that year.
https://stevemorse.org/
start here, find ellis island gold form, and fill in the blanks

On the trip I looked at, he was a musician as were the 4 people above him on the form. Cunard lines paid his passage and he was not headed anywhere, but was 'returning on the ship'

So maybe he was in the ship's orchestra.

Widen out the years at stevemorse.org and you might find more trips.

As Sandra mentioned you need an account at libertyellis.org statueofliberty.org (or whatever they are calling it this week) to view the manifests. and stevemorse will remind you to accept 3rd party cookies, if you aren't.

Happy hunting.

SANDRA and OLDOHIOHOME
Many thanks for your excellent help.
I think that we are starting to get a grip of this man's career!
He was probably an old buddy of a ship's dancer Sheila O'HANLON / HOLT nee FLETCHER whom you have helped with before.

In 1911 Victor is found in a Reformatory in Sufffolk but I anm still working on his parents, Matilda GRAY and Henry WRIGHT [Possibly a retired coachman in 1939].
