Description
"This is a composite of a year in the life of the largest of the Great Lakes, Lake Superior."It begins with a report from February, 1994 about the rare freezing over of Lake Superior and the impact it has on the ports, U.S. Coast Guard and ice anglers. This tory first aired on National Public Radio's 'Morning Edition'. Our second report is an ice rescue of a ship trapped before it could reach open water. This story comes from onboard the Coast Guard cutter 'Sundew' and looks at the art of ice rescues. "The next story is from onboard the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers barge 'Lake Superior' during an effort to recover Department of Defense barrels secretly dumped into Lake Superior over 30 years ago. The recovery effort is done to check the safety of these submerged barrels, and is done with the assistance of a U.S. Navy dive team. The fourth story accompanies Wisconsin State Historical Society Archaeology [sic] divers trying to locate and inventory turn-of-the-century shipwrecks in Lake Superior's Apostle Island. This is an effort to preserve the shipwrecks in both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, and the report is done from onboard a Boston Whaler. "The last report is a two-part series from a four-day submarine expedition over the wreckage of the [sic] carrier Edmund Fitzgerald in Eastern Lake Superior. Included is sound from the first submarine dive by the expedition leader, and the first findings of the remains of a Fitzgerald crewmember and the [sic] it had on one family member of the crew, the widow of the third mate. This series explored possible reasons for its sudden sinking in 1975 and the lasting human impact the disappearance of this ship has [sic] 19 years later. The stories evoked some listener comment including an email message saying it made them understand the feelings of the families and the last moments of the crew."--1994 Peabody Awards entry form.
