New Book Sheds Light on “Great Lakes Lighthouse Tenders”
Paul J. Mason Offers Insight Into This Little-Known Fleet and Their Crews
Paul J. Mason’s “Great Lakes Lighthouse Tenders – A History of the Boats and Crews That Served in the U.S. Lighthouse Service on the Great Lakes,” features vintage photos and detailed information regarding this hard-working fleet.
The ships and crews of the U.S. Lighthouse Tender Service were the unsung heroes of Great Lakes transportation for more than a century. Yet despite the critical role they played in maritime operations, little information is available about these men and the ships they called home.
Braving unpredictable weather and often-dangerous conditions, the lighthouse tender fleet provided crucial services including supply delivery to remote outposts, maintenance of navigational aids, and rescuing sailors shipwrecked at sea.
“Great Lakes Lighthouse Tenders,” published by M&B Global Solutions Inc., is available on Amazon in digital and paperback formats at amzn.to/1lfqYRT.
About the Author
Paul J. Mason developed a love and awe of the Great Lakes while growing up in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Paul’s natural draw to the history of the Lakes grew with his special interest in the U.S. Lighthouse Service, U.S. Lighthouse Tender Service and the U.S. Coast Guard. His grandfather, Richard H. Burdeno, was chief engineer on the USLHT Clover.
A resident of Green Bay, Wisconsin, Paul joined the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and currently serves as a volunteer crew member on a Coast Guard 25-foot patrol boat at U.S. Coast Guard (AUXOP) Station Green Bay.
