Updating our November 21 Fall Meeting

We have relocated our Saturday, November 21 fall meeting to JT Schmid’s Restaurant and Brewery at 2610 East Katella Ave, Anaheim, CA 92806 at noon.

Mark HannaWe will have an interesting program: We will be honored by hosting Dr. Mark G. Hanna, Associate Professor of History at UC San Diego, and a preeminent authority on 17th century maritime history. His topic will be Jamestown’s Maritime Context and he likely will tell us some surprising things. He holds the Robert and Laura Kyle Endowed Chair in Maritime History at the San Diego Maritime Museum and is Honorary Curator of the Hill Collection PN cover MHof Pacific Voyages at the UCSD Library. He is an engaging lecturer and well liked by his students and members of Osher Life Long Learning Institute at UCSD. Many of us visited the San Diego Museum of Natural History’s recent exhibit on piracy that he curated. His new book, Pirate Nests and the Rise of the British Empire, 1570-1740, will soon be released; advance reviews are very positive.
