Art Milmore, historian and author of And the Sea Shall Have Them All: The Wreck of the Steamer Portland
This year marks the 120th anniversary of the Portland Gale, the 1898 storm which struck the New England coast resulting in over 400 fatalities and 150 destroyed boats and ships. Among these was the Portland, a large side-wheel paddle steamer en route from Boston, MA to Portland, ME, whose 190 passengers and crew where among the lives lost. In writing the book, Art completed work begun by his friend, New England maritime historian Edward Rowe Snow. Sponsored by Clean Harbors, Rockland Federal Credit Union and Mass Cultural Council.
