Saturday, June 2, 2018 • 2:30 p.m. Presented by Jay Moore, Librarian and Archivist at the Museum FREE with Museum admission.

This is a new lecture series presented by The Mariners' Museum and Park staff. Go behind the scenes of the Museum and explore our collection while learning about the work the staff does. In 2015, archivist, Jay Moore, and retired Curator of Photography, Tom Moore, secured funding for a three-year project to catalog several "hidden collections" of photo negatives in the Museum's cold storage vault. Today, that project is wrapping up, and the public will see for the first time what we was found! From riverside towns in the Austrian Alps, to U.S. battleships of the dreadnought era, the hidden collections offer something unique and interesting for everyone to enjoy!
