“The Great Museum of the Sea”

James P. Delgado, SEARCH, Inc.  (;
7:30 P.M. Ferris Lounge, Seymour Hall, Knox College, Galesburg, Illinois

The oceans, lakes and rivers of the world are the greatest museum of humanity’s interaction with the sea – as well as our global expansion and a record of our interactions with each other through immigration, exploration, commerce and war.  In an engaging, detailed and yet quick tour, Dr. Delgado explores some of history’s most famous and significant shipwrecks from antiquity through the modern age, with an emphasis on wr, ecks in and around North America – ranging from the Ulu Burun shipwreck of 1300 BC to more modern wrecks like the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor, the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor, or RMS Titanic.  Dr. Delgado will specially tailor his presentation as well to add specific wrecks and themes in the region or area in which he will lecture to make the presentation even more relevant to the audience.
