11/16/14 - The CI Maritime Museum “Fish on Friday: How Eating Fish on Holy Days Changed the World” -- 11/20

> HIDE  
Brian Fagan, Anthropology professor at UCSB and author of numerous books, will share the story of “Fish on Friday: How Eating Fish on Holy Days Changed the World” Thursday November 20th Social Hour 6:30 Speaker 7:00pm
When I arrived in Santa Barbara, I was handed the assignment of teaching a large introductory archaeology course for 300 students. I found there were no good textbooks for beginning students, but a chance meeting with a textbook editor provided me with the opportunity to write such a book on basic archaeological methods and theoretical approaches. It took 5 painful years to write, but In the Beginning appeared in 1972, and has been in print through 11 editions, the latest coming out in 2004. Subsequently, I wrote People of the Earth, a world prehistory, which was published in 1975 and is now in its 13th edition (2009). I have written, or co-authored, eight textbooks of different types, all of which are still in print. The writing and especially revision, of these books consumes a great deal of my time.

Relive Local History with Patrick Smith, Commercial and Scientific Diver
In the spring of 1945 in the skies above the Santa Barbara Channel there occurred a tragic mishap, a mid- air collision that resulted in a tragic loss of two naval aircraft and the lives of four airmen. In the overall sweep of WWII it was a relatively insignificant event that was quickly forgotten, but it would provoke questions and generate research over the next 40 years.

7/3/14 - Living History Before Your Eyes “The Old Man and the Sea” Exhibit, July 2 – 31 -- 7/2
> VIEW   
> HIDE  
Incorporating Hemingway’s words within a starkly beautiful setting reminiscent of the novel, the Museum installation reintroduces this stunning story of strength and grace in old age and pure human compassion.
It’s not a painting. It’s not a ship model. It’s a book. But not just any book. Many have said it is the greatest sea story ever written, powerful enough to be the only sea story to earn its author a Pulitzer Prize. Curators Jacquelyn Cavish, Erica Kern, and Julia Chambers have teamed up to present their interpretation of “The Old Man and the Sea”, Ernest Hemingway’s last novel to be published in his lifetime.
Central to the project is a 14’ Catalina Wherry built a hundred years ago, similar to those used by Cuban inshore fishermen. Powered by sail or oar, they were gaff-rigged, single sail, and clinker built with a wineglass stern. A recording of the book and live readings are broadcast within the exhibit; also included are quotes and images from the story including a life-size model of a striped marlin.
In addition to the Pulitzer in 1953, the story contributed to a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954 and was made into a movie in 1958 staring Spencer Tracy. It is taught in schools around the world. The exhibit is collaboration between the Maritime Museum, Ventura County Arts Council and Caregivers of Ventura County, a non-profit that has provided volunteer assistance to the elderly since 1984.
