Member Monday – The Rise of the Camden Windjammers

November 8 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Member Monday – The Rise of the Camden Windjammers

November 8th, Noon EST on Zoom

In the midst of the Great Depression, Frank Swift moved his family to Maine, intent on cultivating a livelihood from his love of sailing. This was no easy feat, with dominance of wind-driven shipping generations in the past. Drawing on confidence, apparently infectious optimism, and considerable support from others, he brought his dream to fruition. Join PMM Digital Collections Curator Matt Wheeler as he explores the story of Swift’s success through a close examination of a selection of images from the Carroll Thayer Berry and Frank Swift Collections in the Penobscot Marine Museum Photo Archives. If you enjoyed our October 7th “Windjammers of Penobscot Bay” Film Screening + Discussion Panel, you don’t want to miss this!
