Bird Homestead & Meeting House Conservancy Talk
Bird Homestead & Meeting House Conservancy
624 Milton Road
Join Matthew Stackpole for a talk about Schooner Ernestina-Morrissey, Official Vessel of Massachusettts, her amazing history and current rebirth.
The vessel will be of interest to the Meeting House and Bird Homestead audience as the vessel was a platform for Julius Bird’s early Arctic research. He first sailed on her second voyage in 1927 at age 20 in the position of “assistant botanist”. Junius Bird sailed on Effie M. Morrissey with Captain Bob Bartlett into the 1930′s. Scroll down to 1933 on the link for a photo of Bird on that year’s voyage to the upper reaches of Baffin Bay. He went on to become the Curator of South American archeology at the American Museum of Natural History
