        The Wreck of the Corinthian

        This interactive activity, adapted from material provided by the ECHO partners, presents three accounts of the story of the wreck and attempted salvage of the whaling ship Corinthian. The documents include a ship’s log from another whaler, the George Howland, which towed the Corinthian to a safe harbor; a newspaper account of the events; and a painting based on the story.
