Fall Lecture Series History Below the Waves: Shipwrecks of Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
Venue: 100 Museum Drive
Presented by Jeff Gray, Superintendent of NOAA's Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Preserved by the cold freshwater on which they once served, more than 200 shipwrecks are believed to rest in Lake Huron's Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The sheer number of shipwrecks is impressive. However, it is their excellent state of preservation and what they represent - a century and a half of maritime commerce and travel on the Great Lakes' that make them truly special. Jeff Gray, the superintendent of TBNMS, will take us on a freshwater journey to a time when schooner and steamer ruled the Great Lakes. We will explore some of the nation's best preserved shipwrecks and how the sanctuary is working through research and education efforts to protect the Great Lakes and their rich history for future generations.
FREE for Members; $5 for guests

John Reber's Very Bad Idea & the Origins of the Bay Model External Event Page
Sausalito, California
John Reber's plan would have destroyed San Francisco Bay as we know it, turning almost all of the estuary into a fresh-water lake and adding 20,000 acres of bay fill. If the Reber Plan had been adopted in the 1950s, the Save The Bay Movement of the 1960s would have been impossible because there would have been no bay left to save. Charles Wollenberg is a history instructor at Berkeley City College and Convener of the California Studies Seminar at UC Berkeley. Join him for this talk about John Reber himself, his plan, the two decades of debate and controversy the proposal engendered, and the connection between the Reber Plan and the establishment of the Bay Model.

Mirror of the Martyrs Exhibit External Event Page
Montezuma, Kansas
Venue: Stauth Museum
The internationally-touring Mirror of the Martyrs traveling exhibit will be on display at the Stauth Memorial Museum of Montezuma, Kansas. The exhibit will be in the area for a nine-week showing at the Stauth Memorial Museum. This exhibit is sponsored by Martyrs Mirror Trust, Kauffman Museum of North Newton, Kansas and Mennonite Historical Library of Goshen, Indiana. This exhibit was displayed at the Stauth Museum in 1996 and drew record crowds. ////// The Mirror of the Martyrs is an exhibit inspired by the discovery in 1975 of thirty copper plates used in the printing of the 1685 edition of the Martyrs Mirror edited by Thieleman van Braght. This second edition included illustrations by the Mennonite artist Jan Luyken. Seven of the plates, thought to have been lost in World War II, were brought to the United States by Amos Hoover, Denver, Pennsylvania. In 1989 the remaining 23 plates were obtained by Robert Kreider, Kauffman Museum, Bethel College, North Newton, Kansas, and John Oyer, Mennonite Historical Library, Goshen College, Goshen, Indiana, and placed in the possession of the Martyrs Mirror Trust. In 2011 another plate was discovered and made available to the Trust. In 1989 the construction of an exhibit based on the new acquisition of plates was begun. The exhibit was designed as a traveling exhibit, modular in design with self-contained lighting. It features eight copper plates with additional images produced from the 1685 edition, four editions of the Martyrs Mirror (1660, 1685, 1748 and 1780) and various other artifacts that illustrate the times in which the events of the Martyrs Mirror took place. Added to the exhibit, are stories of contemporary martyrs and prisoners of conscience. The exhibit opened at the Kauffman Museum in 1990 after which it began a journey that has taken it across North America. The exhibit has been on display in 68 locations in at least twenty two states and five Canadian provinces.
