New Project Compiles Maritime Heritage Resources

A group of maritime heritage organizations, inlcuding Maritime Heritage Network, and library representatives has begun an effort to compile a list of collections, books, boat plans, photographs, artifacts, and oral histories owned by maritime heritage organizations in western Washington. Led by Seattle Public Library [link] and the Center for Wooden Boats [link], the group includes the Puget Sound Maritime Historical Society [link], the Museum of History & Industry [link], and the Classic Yacht Association [link]. Called "In Search of Maritime History," the goal is to place a list of these resources in one place for easy access by researches and laypeople. MHN is looking forward to hosting the list. For more information, contact Jodee Fenton at Jodee.Fenton@spl.org.
