On April 16, 2015, the Stephen B. Luce Library Lecture Series welcomed SUNY Maritime's Provost,Timothy Lynch. Dr. Lynch discussed his latest publication, Beyond the Golden Gate: A Maritime History of California. He shared with the audience some background history on the events surrounding the conception of the idea for the book. This included his research methodology, research implementation and some anecdotal teaching stories. Dr. Lynch then provided the audience with a highly engaging lesson on California's maritime history.
The lecture was followed by an equally informative question and answer session. Dr. Lynch then stayed to sign many books. The well attended lecture (standing room only) of the library lecture series was a terrific way to cap of the semester.
