David Nelson, whose grandfather Frank Perry was a crew member on the whaleship Catalpa, starts off the fall Second Half lecture series at the New Bedford Whaling Museum on Thursday, September 21 with Famine, Friends & Fenians – The Catalpa Story at 2:30 pm. This is a great chance to re-visit themes from the Museum's Famine, Friends & Fenians exhibition, or to see the show for the first time! We'll tour the exhibition immediately following David's talk. Second Half lectures this season explore recently opened galleries and fascinating stories of Old Dartmouth, from offshore to seaside. The daytime lecture series is presented in partnership with The Second Half Lifelong Learning Institute.

Whaling Museum members $10; non-members $15. Advance registration is strongly recommended. Register online or call 508-997-0046 ext. 100.
