T

he North American Society for Oceanic History will hold its annual conference, June 1-4, at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum in Manitowoc, inspiring us to feature the museum in this issue. This year's theme is "Charting the Inland Seas: Recent Studies in Great Lakes Research." NMHS staff and trustees will be in attendance, and we'd be pleased to meet you there. Program and registration information can be found at www.nasoh.org. Father's Day weekend, June 16-18, NMHS will have a table at the Antique and Classic Boat Festival at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. The largest event of its kind in the midChesapeake Bay Maritime Atlantic region, it features 100 antique and classic boats, boatbuilding demonstrations, maritime craft vendors, sea chanteymen (and women), traditional Bay food, and boat rides. Remember that NMHS members who support the Society with $I 00 or more get in free to maritime museums with the CAMM card we send to you. This is a great time to stop by the NMHS table and talk to trustees and me about your vision for the Society's future course. NMHS is delighted to be supporting the Frank 0. Braynard Commemorative Sail at South Street Seaport in New York City on July 26th, honoring a great leader in the maritime field as he celebrates his 90th birthday on the 30th anniversary of two of his great accomplishments. Frank Braynard was a founder of Operation Sail, which brought the world's tall ships and their crews together in one location. He was the founder of the Around Long Island Regatta and worked to make South Street Seaport Museum a reality. An expert on ocean liners and a remarkable artist and writer, Frank Braynard is the author of numerous well-respected maritime books. The July 26th event will be jam-packed with activities and opportunities. The dedication ceremony on the deck of Peking at Spm will feature NMHS President Emeritus Peter Stanford and NMHS Chairman Emeritus Howard Slotnick. For reservations on the planned observation boat or dinner cruise and for more information, visit www.alir.org. November 5-7, NMHS will travel to Charleston, South Carolina, for the American Sail Training Association Conference. ASTA will feature presentations from professional mariners , educators, and port fes tival organizers from across the country, C anada and Europe. Details and registration materials can be found at www.sailtraining.org. With maritime events like these being organized and well attended across the country, there can be no doubt that interest and enthusiasm in studying and preserving our maritime h eritage is on the rise. Now, more than ever, the nation needs Sea H istory as a national publication whose strong voice promotes the message of our seafaring legacy and brings the histories of our maritime past to life. Please try to join us at one event at least. It is by our members and their ongoing support that we maintain and develop our strength to pursue our mission. 2
