Sailing the Inland Seas and the Story of the Edmund Fitzgerald


Parkway Speaker Series

Sunday, November 11 | 11:15 am | via Zoom

While a college student, Parkway member John Dwyer worked in the summers as a merchant seaman on Great Lakes “ore boats.” This included a summer on the Edmund Fitzgerald, which on November 10, 1975 was lost with all hands during a ferocious storm on Lake Superior. On November 8th, John will talk about his experiences on the “ore boats,” and on November 15th he will tell the story of the storm that took down the “Fitz,” the disappearance, and the efforts to solve the mystery of the sinking.
