"Legacy of the Blue Riband: The Maiden Voyage of SS United States"
Please join us in person at the Chatham Marconi Maritime Center, or watch on Zoom: "Legacy of the Blue Riband: The Maiden Voyage of SS United States" lecture. In this talk we will discuss the history of the Trans-Atlantic speed record, how SS United States fits into that history, and how she compares to other ships that have held the title. This talk will be given by Alaina Noland, Preservation and Outreach Associate for the SS United States Conservancy.
Seating is limited - sign up early!
Alaina Noland is the Preservation and Outreach Associate at the SS United States Conservancy. She has been there since 2021. She has fallen in love with museum ships because she believes “they are excellent platforms from which history, engineering, and art can be discussed with the public.” The majority of her time is spent making the collection more accessible, but she also assists with the oral history initiative and upcoming digital exhibitions. Her primary goal is to get the historical collection completely cataloged and accessible to as many people as possible. Alaina holds an undergraduate degree in European History from the University of Virginia’s College at Wise and, she completed her Master’s degree in Public History at Rutgers University Camden.
