Cutter Rescues – Harbor History Talk

Tuesday, Jun 28, 2022

5:30pm – 7:00pm

Historian and author Ric Mixter present “Cutter Rescues.” This engaging presentation chronicles the history of four Great Lakes Coast Guard cutters; Mackinaw, Sundew, Hollyhock and Escanaba – profiling seven of their rescues that saved over 200 lives from 1934 until 1966. The lecture also features the tragic loss of the Escanaba, which was built in Bay City, Michigan and lost after a mysterious explosion near Greenland. Rare footage and interviews from 4 survivors and 7 crew members make this a unique salute to the men and women who protect lives on our inland seas.

This talk will be held at the Harbor Springs History Museum beginning at 5:30 pm. Tickets are $25 each and include wine and light snacks. Reservations required.
