Matthew Brown visited with diver Mark Wick Oct. 26 about the steamship America. His third cousin was first mate on the ship when it sank off Isle Royale after hitting a submerged reef; everyone aboard was saved. The wreck is a popular dive site today, as it is in fairly protected water, and the bow is just a few feet from the surface. Mark speaks at this year's Gales of November conference in Duluth, Nov. 2 & 3.
