Inland Seas® Quarterly Journal
Since 1945, the Great Lakes Historical Society has published its award winning quarterly journal, Inland Seas®. This publication is the longest running and most widely respected journal of Great Lakes history published anywhere. It is a primary membership benefit of the organization for Inland Seas® Members which explains why the Society has the largest membership base of any maritime historical organization on the Great Lakes. The journal covers all topics of Great Lakes maritime history from across the entire Great Lakes watershed.
Over 1,800 individuals from 47 states and three countries are members at the Inland Seas level of the National Museum of the Great Lakes. Without a doubt, what brings this diverse group of individuals together is our award-winning quarterly journal, Inland Seas®. Published continuously since 1945, this historical journal brings to life many facets of Great Lakes history. From the Edmund Fitzgerald to recreational sailing to commercial fishing, to early life on the shores of the Great Lakes, our writers depict events and experiences that capture the essence of Great Lakes history.
Our writers also present their research in a narrative style that does not lose the reader in footnotes and arcane points of historical minutia.
An Inland Seas® Membership to The Great Lakes Historical Society includes a subscription to Inland Seas®. As a member, you can enjoy these and other stories that have captivated readers since 1945!
