November 18, 2021 (Toledo, Ohio) – On Wednesday, December 1, at 7 p.m. the National Museum of the Great Lakes (NMGL) will welcome Bruce Lynn, Executive Director of the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, to deliver the final presentation in their annual fall lecture series titled Braving the Waves: Life-Saving Service on the Shipwreck Coast.
“The desolate shoreline between Whitefish Point and Pictured Rocks has come to be known as Lake Superior’s Shipwreck Coast,” explains Carrie Sowden, the museum’s Archaeological and Research Director who moderates the hybrid lecture series. “This presentation will explore the stories of the ‘Storm Warriors’ along the desolate shoreline between Whitefish Point and Pictured Rocks to shed light on a little-known chapter of Great Lakes history.”
As in the previous lectures, the National Museum of the Great Lakes will offer this presentation as a hybrid event using Zoom with one noted difference—the presenter will be delivering the lecture virtually. Individuals wishing to participate in person may come to the museum for a watch party and be a part of the live-streamed question and answer session following the presentation.
The lecture is free to all, but registration is required. Participants can choose when registering to take part in person at the museum or online via Zoom. Donations are encouraged and can be given upon registration.
