Speaker: Terry Begnoche, Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society, diver and underwater photographer

The Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society conducted three expeditions to the Edmund Fitzgerals which sank in Lake Superior on November 1, 1975. On the third and final expedition, they recovered the ship’s bell, now on display at Whitefish Point, Which serves as a memorial to the lost crew. Terry Begnoche participated in each of the expeditions and will provide pictures and insights from behind the scenes both above and below the surface of Lake Superior. Join us as we explore the Legend of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
