Executive Director Molly Sampson, Maritime Museum of Sandusky

Executive Director Molly Sampson of the Maritime Museum of Sandusky will speak as part of the Catawba Island Historical Society’s Cultural Lecture Series on Wednesday, May 24 at 6 p.m. The free event is open to the public.

Sampson will address the role local maritime businesses played in supporting the country’s WW II military efforts. The presentation begins at 6 p.m. on May 24 at the Township Community Hall, 3307 N.W. Catawba Rd., Port Clinton..

Sampson is a native of Northwest Ohio, a Bowling Green State University Alumna, and currently pursuing a master’s degree in WW II Studies.

“The Second World War saw rapid change in many business sectors. One of the most significant was the increase in industrial production — first for defense, then as was production following the attack on Pearl Harbor, said Sampson.

“Enterprises like the Matthews and Lyman boat companies did a remarkable job rising to meet the government’s needs.”
