SEA HISTORY Magazine Turns 50!

Sea History Magazine Turns 50!

The National Maritime Historical Society is celebrating 50 years of SEA HISTORY magazine!

We’ve come a long way since our first issue in April 1972, a modest black-and-white publication reporting on the news of maritime museums. From the very start, the Society’s mission has been to preserve and promote our maritime heritage among maritime organizations and the great community of people who love ships and mariners, the sea, rivers, and bays.

SEA HISTORY has broadened its horizons over the years, from an initial focus on historic ships and shipsaving to include the world of marine art, sail training, marine archaeology, maritime law and medicine, and broader maritime history. And now all issues are indexed and accessible on our website, complete with hyperlinked entries, helping us reach new generations of maritime enthusiasts.

If you love SEA HISTORY magazine and the work we do to promote our shared maritime heritage for sailors and scholars of all ages, please consider making a donation to the National Maritime Historical Society today. We are grateful for your support, which preserves a legacy of knowledge and provides critical funding for SEA HISTORY magazine, online resources at www.seahistory.org, our ongoing educational initiatives including Sea History for Kids online and our documentary on ERNESTINA-MORRISSEY, the Society’s efforts to highlight the plight of historic ships in distress, and the conservation of the Society’s maritime library and collections—a treasure of scholarship, information, literature and lore.
