Member Monday – Project Archivist Sarah Collins explores the Chart Collection
March 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The chart collections of Penobscot Marine Museum provide a fascinating glimpse of how seafarers viewed the world around them. In addition to the margin notes added by prudent captains, these charts also show a human glimpse of the people whose lives relied on them, from the rings of old coffee cups to patches of cloth taken out of the family rag bag. Join me as we discuss some of the stories you can tease out of these old charts.
Sarah Collins has a master’s degree in museum studies from the University of New Hampshire, and has spent much of the last 20 years working on ships and at museums up and down the east coast.
Member Mondays are included as a member benefit and feature intimate monthly Zoom lunchtime programs about objects and photographs in our collection presented by staff members. Topics vary every month – it’s a fun way to take a close look at items in our collections and get a peek behind the scenes at PMM.
