In Search of Virginia's Maritime Heritage External Event Page
The Mariners' Museum and Park   Organization Web Page
Newport News, Virginia
Come hear how the Commonwealth has been shaped by its many waterways! Did you know a portion of the first fort built at Jamestown eroded into the James River? And, that the York River holds more than a dozen ships sunk during the Battle of Yorktown in 1781, the last major battle of the American Revolution? //// On Saturday, August 24, The Department of Historic Resources (DHR) will present an insightful and illuminating seminar at The Mariners' Museum and Park about how Virginia's extensive network of bays and rivers has influenced and continues to impact the lives and commerce of Commonwealth citizens over the past 400 years. //// DHR will delve into various topics and discussions, including how the use of Virginia's bays, rivers, and tributaries has changed over time; how underwater archaeologists extract history from beneath the waters; and so much more. //// Attendees will also learn from DHR about exciting and educational new opportunities to participate in the state's efforts to discover, research, manage, and protect its many and varied underwater archaeological sites. The seminar is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is encouraged as seating may be limited. //// For more information about this seminar, go to DHR's website.

The Ghost Ships of Archangel: The Arctic Voyage That Defied the Nazis External Event Page
The Mariners' Museum and Park   Organization Web Page
Newport News, Virginia
William Geroux, author of The Mathews Men, returns to the Museum to share yet another emotionally gripping maritime history, The Ghost Ships of Archangel. In 1942, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill agreed to send Joseph Stalin's army supplies in hopes of bolstering the Russians until a European invasion could be mounted. That June, the 35 cargo ships of convoy PQ 17 set sail for the Soviet port of Archangel, carrying $1 billion worth of war materiel. Days later, the fleet was ordered to disband, quickly becoming prey for the Nazis. This extraordinary tale of survival and shifting alliances during World War II, traces the nightmarish voyage of four Allied ships into the ice floes of the North Pole. ///// A veteran journalist, Geroux wrote for the Richmond Times-Dispatch for 25 years. His work has appeared in The New York Times and The Associated Press. A graduate of the College of William and Mary, he lives in Virginia Beach. //// To purchase an advance copy of The Ghost Ships of Archangel prior to the lecture, go to the Museum’s online web shop at: https://shop.marinersmuseum.org/the-ghost-ships-of-archangel.html. After you've made your purchase, your book will be placed on hold at the Museum to either pick up at your convenience or prior to the lecture.
FREE for Members; $5 for guests

Seizing the Moment: The Evolution in Action Photography External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
The Evolution of Action Photography will feature never before seen images from The Horace Havemeyer III Collection along with work by contemporary photographers, showing the evolution of marine photography from a documentary approach to more of an artistic perspective. The Havemeyer Collection includes gelatin silver prints by early 20th-century master marine photographers Edwin Levick and Morris Rosenfeld, as well as work by others. ///// Levick and Rosenfeld pushed the limits of the photographic medium, capturing exciting, point-of-view images over a nine-year span. Levick’s work often placed the viewer squarely on deck, seemingly as part of the action, while Rosenfeld worked for Levick before he opened his own studio in 1910. ///// This one of a kind maritime collection was donated to The Mariners’ Museum in 2015 as a significant gift in memory of Horace Havemeyer III, a native of New York and an avid sailor. Havemeyer’s grandfather purchased these photographs from Levick; and over the years, they were passed down to his son and then grandson, Horace III, who founded Metropolis magazine in 1981. He served as its president until his death in 2014. His wife, Eugenie C. Havemeyer, is now at the helm of this publication, which is considered the vanguard of architecture and design today.
