The Great Storm of 1913

LaMarre will give an in-depth presentation on the most riveting event of shipwrecks and survival ever to strike the Great Lakes: the Great Storm of 1913. Because the S.S. Col James M. Schoonmaker is the last vessel in existence to have sailed through this industry changing event, Paul will also shed new light on her harrowing journey and that of her Shenango Furnace Co. fleetmates as they battled the storm, and emerged to sail again.   

Paul C. LaMarre III, is a board member of the Great Lakes Historical Society and largely credited with the salvation, subsequent restoration and continued operation of the S.S. Col James M. Schoonmaker Museum Ship for which he received the Association for Great Lakes Maritime History's Award for Historic Preservation. Paul is presently and active leader in the Great Lakes Maritime industry as the Director of the Port of Monroe, MI, an officer of the American Great Lakes Ports Association, and a member of the National Freight Advisory Committee.

Special Extended Hours
The National Museum of the Great Lakes will offer extended hours for the general public on Wednesday, November 12, for the final speaker in the Fall Lecture Series. The Museum will be open until 8pm. The Col. James M. Schoonmaker Museum Ship is currently closed for the winter season.
