Capt. Anderson was a Master Mariner and captain of many of the ships built at the Snow Shipyard in Rockland. John Anderson’s talk will be based on the logs and journals kept by his grandfather. This talk will provide insight into the era of sailing ships when Rockland was a major force in shipbuilding.
