AGM Speaker

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Mike Santos will be the speaker for our meeting this year. Dr. Santos, a history professor at Lynchburg College in Virginia, is an avid historian of the fishing industry under sail and has extensively researched the International Fisherman Races between the US and Canada in the 1920s and 1930s in his book Caught in Irons. The book uses the fisherman races as a window into the changing social and economic realities that redefined the North Atlantic fisheries. The complications in running the Fishermen's Races between the US and Canada then are just as germane today! This should be a fascinating talk so please attend.
