ALPENA -Over 70 history professors and scholars attended the North American Society for Oceanic History conference held in the theater and education room at the Maritime Heritage Center this last weekend. There were 43 presentations on different areas of oceanic history, with some international presenters and local maritime enthusiasts involved.
"It's a great way for these folks with similar interests to interact as colleagues," conference organizer Cathy Green said. "They also get to see the education programs and different kinds of programs we offer."
Conference attendees participated in trips around the area showcasing our maritime history including a shipwreck tour on the glass bottom boat.
