Maritime Disasters of the Great Lakes displays

The Humanities Department at the Central Library is teaming up with the Wisconsin Marine Historical Society to put the spotlight on maritime disasters that took place on the Great Lakes. Each month a new shipwreck will be highlighted, and the previous months' shipwreck displays will be preserved for viewing.

Wreck of the HENRY CORT.

The display started in October with the wreck of the EMPRESS OF IRELAND. November's featured wreck is that of the EDMUND FITZGERALD, and December's will be of the wreck of the ROUSE SIMMONS, the Christmas Tree Ship.

The displays will be ongoing through the month of May; for as long as the Titanic Exhibit is up at the Milwaukee Public Museum
