39th Annual Maritime History Symposium
Maine Maritime Museum
Topic: “The Navy and Maine”
April 30, 2011
Maine Maritime Museum’s symposium this year will cover a broad range of naval topics with an impact on Maine. Naval vessels built in the state, Maine naval shipyards and duty stations, naval seamen from Maine, the defense of the Maine coast, naval action along the Maine coast, all naval subjects with any relation to Maine will be open for presentation and debate. There is no time period restriction. The theme was inspired by local concerns regarding the 2011 closing of Maine’s Brunswick Naval Air Station, but presentations need not be focused on the air base, Cold War, or ASW topics.
This Symposium will also complement Maine Maritime Museum’s exhibit (Feb. 19 to Aug. 7, 2011) Cold Waters, Cold War: the 20th Century Navy in Maine.
To propose a speaker or to volunteer to speak, contact senior curator Nathan Lipfert, email@example.com, or 207-443-1316, ext. 328.
