In December 2014, Mystic Seaport, in collaboration with The Day newspaper, published The Charles W. Morgan: A Picture History of an American Icon, a coffee-table book chronicling the history of America’s last surviving whaleship of a fleet that once numbered more than 2,700. Built and launched in 1841, the Morgan is now America’s oldest commercial ship still afloat. The book captures the vessel’s amazing journey through an 80-year whaling career, seven decades as a museum exhibit, the ship’s recent restoration, and her historic 38th Voyage in 2014.

On Friday, June 26, the book’s authors, Andrew W. German and Daniel V. McFadden, as well as the Museum photographers whose photos from the 38th Voyage are featured in the book, Dennis A. Murphy and Andy Price, will sign copies of the book from 3-5 p.m.
