The Hunters & The Hunted: Early Mariners of Cape Ann
The early mariners of Cape Ann were not only hardy fishermen, boat builders, and prosperous merchant sea captains, but also cunning and courageous defenders of a new nation during both the War of Independence and the War of 1812. Join Stephanie Buck and John Huss as they share a wealth of fastening stories about the gallant seamen of Gloucester and Manchester as they battled the supposedly invincible British Navy! John Huss is a past president of the Manchester Historical Museum, and its current Curator and Program Coordinator. John is also a docent at the Cape Ann Museum and serves on the Museum's Education Committee. Stephanie Buck is the Librarian/Archivist at the Cape Ann Museum. She was educated in England and was awarded a degree from Bedford College, London University, before coming to this country. She is married to the Cape Ann Museum's photo-archivist Fred Buck. In 2004 she joined the Cape Ann Museum staff as librarian and archivist and has since authored and co-authored several books and papers and given lectures on such diverse topics as The Art of Gossip and the Life of Rev.
