Michael Dooling Lecture- Bridgeport Public Main Library-Burroughs & Saden Branch3:30 PM Saturday,Sep 12 at 2:00 PM
Michael Dooling is a museum archivist and former news librarian. He has researched the life of Aaron Wood since 1989, when he acquired Aaron’s journal from his first voyage on the Monarch of the Sea.
In 1854, Aaron H. Wood from Swansea, Massachusetts left the comfort of his family and farm and embarked on a lifetime journey. With William R. Gardner as master of the new clipper ship Monarch of the Sea, Aaron’s maiden voyage brought him to the Black Sea at the height of the Crimean War. In his handwritten journal Aaron described life aboard ship, the Crimean battlefields, and a naval assault that used shell guns and iron-sided vessels for the first time.
Michael Dooling has written two articles based on his research for The Log of Mystic Seaport and Naval History.
