Member Monday – To Peru in 2023 and 1863

November 13, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


After returning to Maine from Peru, this summer’s Geiger Museum Exploration Intern Judson Thomas looked for connections within the Penobscot Marine Museum collection. He found four logbooks that mention Peru and he transcribed a portion of the 1863 logbook of the ship WELLFLEET kept by American captain, Henry S. Rich, of Bucksport, ME. In this Member Monday, Education Director Jeana Ganskop will share the process she and Judson went through to find a logbook and some interesting portions of the one Judson worked on.

Member Mondays are included as a member benefit and feature intimate monthly Zoom lunchtime programs presented by staff members. Topics vary every session — it’s a fun way to take a close look at items in our collections and get a peek behind the scenes at PMM.
