There was a time, before interstate highways and jet airplanes, when one could board an evening steamer in Albany and wake up the next day at a pier in New York City. Likewise one could go from Boston to New York, Boston to Portland, ME, Ogdensburg to Montreal, etc. This class session will examine a few of the lines, and explore the joys of a slower mode of travel.
Art Johnson taught “Maritime History” at SUNY Potsdam. He researched and wrote his doctoral thesis on steamer lines to the Maritime Provinces. Art received the “Leon LeBeau SOARing Educator Award” in recognition of the many outstanding courses he has taught for SOAR.
