SPEAKER SERIES AT MARITIME MUSUEM - STURGEON BAY
Dates of Events: Nov 5 2015 - March 3 2016
FITZGERALD PROGRAM TO KICK OFF SPEAKER SERIES NOVEMBER 5
Mark your calendars, the Door County Maritime Museum’s popular Maritime Speaker Series returns with five monthly programs beginning Thursday, Nov. 5, and continuing until March 3, 2016.This year’s series begins a month earlier than in previous years with a program being held in conjunction with the museum’s current 40th anniversary tribute exhibit dedicated to the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Author Rochelle Pennington returns to the museum on Thursday, Nov. 5, at 7 p.m. to address the most famous of all Great Lakes shipwrecks. It’s an event that gained worldwide fame both because of singer/songwriter Gordon Lightfoot’s hit song as well as the mystery that continues to this day concerning the cause on its sinking.
Pennington, who gained popularity for books on topics such as the Rouse Simmons (Christmas Tree Ship), will delve into the various theories and opposing views relating to the big ore carrier’s demise on Nov. 10, 1975 in which all 29 crew members tragically perished, including two men with strong ties to Sturgeon Bay.
Pennington has been researching the Fitzgerald’s sinking for a new book scheduled to be released next spring.
Four additional programs will follow beginning on Tuesday, Dec. 1. This is a departure from the normally first Thursday of the month scheduling to avoid the Green Bay Packers game at Detroit on Thursday night.
The Tuesday, Dec. 1, program features the Door County Maritime Museum’s former Executive Director, Bob Desh, who will present a program on World War II K-9 beach patrols, a more in-depth look inside the current Sea Dogs exhibit at the museum which Desh helped compile.
Resuming the first Thursday night scheduling in 2016, Terry Connelly will offer an in-depth look at the development and workings of The Weather Channel on Jan. 7. Connelly, who was senior vice president and general manager of the ground-breaking television network, will discuss such monumental challenges as the network’s coverage of Hurricane Katrina.
On Thursday, Feb. 4, the Door County Land Trust will present a program on the islands of Door County and specifically some of the work the conservation organization has been doing on some of them.
The series wraps up on Thursday, March 3, when author Joan Forsberg will delve into one of the great mysteries of the Great Lakes with a talk related to her new book “The Wreck of the Griffon,” Robert LaSalle’s 17-century sailing ship that disappeared during a voyage to Green Bay.
All of the evening programs are free of charge with a non-perishable food donation requested. They begin at 7 p.m. at the Sturgeon Bay museum. Call (920) 743-5958 or visit www.dcmm.org for moreinformation.
