Leviathan: The History of Whaling in America
Eric Jay Dolin joins us to discuss the history of one of America’s earliest industries: Whaling.
Dolin enumerates several sites to learn more about the history of whaling including the Nantucket Whaling Museum, New Bedford Whaling Museum, The Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum, Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum, and Mystic Seaport Museum which has the Charles W. Morgan, the only remaining wooden whaling ship in the world. You can also watch an excellent gallery talk with New Bedford Whaling Museum curator Akeia Benard, PhD.
