“Many have called the Charles W. Morgan a “lucky ship.” I don’t know about that… the word “magical,” I think, may be a better description.”
Michael P. Dyer
Dyer has 20 years of experience as a whaling curator, librarian, and maritime historian at the Kendall and New Bedford Whaling Museums. His exhibitions and publications have contributed to a better public understanding of whaling history and the artistry of both practical and decorative objects. His upcoming book The Art of the Yankee Whale Hunt explores how whalemen illustrated the craft of whaling in journals, logbooks, painting, and scrimshaw.
Eighty-five individuals from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds sailed aboard the ship and participated in an unprecedented public-history project, using their own perspectives and talents to document their experiences. Meet the Voyagers »
