Storm Warriors: Shipwrecks and Survivors in Boston Harbor
Ed McCabe director, Maritime Program, Hull Lifesaving Museum
Lory Newmyer executive director, Hull Lifesaving Museum
Ed McCabe and Lory Newmyer of the Hull Lifesaving Museum share the stories of the Storm Warriors of the US Life Saving Service.
From Colonial times through the Industrial Revolution, Boston was one of the busiest shipping ports in the country, and the maritime heritage of the region continues to mark our lives in the city today. Massachusetts is the birthplace of aids to mariners designed both to prevent shipwrecks and and to help wreck survivors. During its peak years, the Storm Warriors of the US Life Saving Service saved over 28,000 vessels and 179,000 people from the terrifying perils of the sea. Perhaps the greatest of these local, often unsung, heroes were the men of Hull, who kept this busiest of all ports also the best protected.
