Tattletale Sounds: The Legend of the Edmund Fitzgerald with Ric Mixter
The mighty Fitz is the Great Lakes largest shipwreck, resting in two major pieces on the bottom of Lake Superior just over the Canadian border. It was lost in a killer storm in 1975, and its entire crew of 29 simply vanished into the waves around seven that evening. Shipwreck historian, Ric Mixter, is one of only a handful of people who have visited the wreck personally, diving 550 feet down in a tiny submarine to explore the site for over an hour. This was actually the beginning of over 20 years of research for Mixter, who has collected one of the largest film archives of Fitzgerald related material, and recently authored a book. Exclusive underwater footage, exclusive interviews, and his first-hand observations made at the wreck site make this a presentation you shouldn't miss!
