This month's program will be a pre-recorded presentation by Art Geisel on the tragedy of the Joy Line Steamer, Larchmont, which sank off the coast of Rhode Island in 1907 with 374 souls aboard. To some it is known as New England's Titanic. The liner was christened the Cumberland and provided service between Boston, St. John and Maine before being sold to the Joy Line for the Providence to NYC run. Mr. Geisel had the opportunity to dive the wreck many years ago and participate, in a small way, to the making of a commercial video about the tragedy. The presentation will revolve around the research Mr. Geisel conducted, including the Steamship Inspector's hearings.
