Dennis Hale, Shipwreck Survivor, Passes Away
Dennis Hale was SSHSA's recipient of the 2014 Samuel Ward Stanton lifetime achievement award, and the keynote speaker at that year's ShiPosium. He was the sole survivor of the sinking of the Daniel J. Morell, which broke up during a storm on Lake Huron in 1966. Hale toured as a speaker about his experience, and life, published a book about the ordeal and was featured in a documentary on Great Lakes shipwrecks. SSHSA extends heartfelt condolences to his family.
