The Northport-East Northport Public Library will be presenting “The Wreck of the Gwendoline Steers:
A forensic Analysis” hosted by local author and maritime enthusiast Edward A.T. Carr on Wednesday, December 5th at 7pm. The presentation will take place at the Northport Branch auditorium. There is no charge to attend.

Fifty years ago this month, the tugboat Gwendoline Steers, pride of the Steers Sand & Gravel Company, sank in Huntington Bay during an ice storm with all hands. LIFE Magazine and local newspapers kept the tragedy fresh in everyone’s minds until the wreck was found and all bodies recovered the following Spring.

Join Ed Carr for a forensic look at the shipweck and conclusions of the Coast Guard inquiry.
