The Legend Lives On S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald
Featuring rare archival material and exclusive underwater images: The Legend Lives On S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald by Bruce Lynn and Christopher Winters, The Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society.
Four decades after the Edmund Fitzgerald vanished from the radar screen of the trailing steamer Arthur M. Anderson, the largest ship ever lost on the Great Lakes continues to inspire our capacity for wonder and grief.
As the “Pride of the American Side” slashed across Lake Superior that fearful November night in 1975, her veteran skipper reported some seemingly incidental topside damage and a “bad list.” At around 7:10 p.m., Fitzgerald went missing without a distress call of any kind. There were no survivors.
Great Lakes photojournalist, Chris Winters, and Bruce Lynn, Executive Director of the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society, have assembled a comprehensive look at the working life and mysterious wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
