Lighthouse Days

July 24-25, 2018

Join the Columbia River Maritime Museum for a series of brief "TED-style" talks celebrating the stories of Oregon's unique collection of coastal lighthouses. Talks are presented by Dr. Debra Baldwin, author of the Images of America book, Tillamook Rock Lighthouse. Dr. Baldwin, a historian and staff writer for Lighthouse Digest Magazine, travels the country doing lighthouse research with a specialization in researching the keepers of these important historic navigational markers. Dr. Baldwin has taught history at Utah State University, worked as an education consultant for the U.S. State Department, and holds a PhD from the University of Wales in Great Britain.
