Lecture on Great Storm of 1913

Document Actions

Part of the Library's quarterly lecture series.

     The Bad Axe Area District Library continues its quarterly lecture series on Monday, November 8 at 7:00 with a timely presentation about the worst storm ever to hit the Great Lakes.  With winds stronger than the ones we recently experienced, the Great Storm of November 1913 took the largest toll on lives and ships of any Great Lakes storm.  It raged for 4 days across Lakes Superior and Huron with some of the worst losses occurring along the shores of Huron County.  Learn about the ships of that time and the unique weather events that led to this tragic disaster.  

      Our presenter, David McDonald, is a trustee for the Great Lakes Lore Maritime Museum in Rogers City, Michigan and a member of the Pointe aux Barques Lighthouse Society.  He has had a life-long interest in Great Lakes shipping history and vessel design.  He also co-authored the maritime chapter in the award-winning Huron County sesquicentennial history book, Celebrating 150 Years, Huron County, Michigan 1859-2009.
