Island Historian Presents Talk on Mosquito Fleet


Island historian Jean Findlay will provide unique insight and information about Puget Sound’s historical steamboats during the Vashon Heritage Museum’s next monthly Museum Talk series “Stories of Our Mosquito Fleets,” taking place at 7:00 pm, on Thursday, August 12, on Zoom, for free.

Findlay, a retired elementary school teacher, is a member of the museum’s Collections Committee and has long been interested in the history of the Mosquito Fleet that served the Puget Sound during the 1800s and early 1900s. She co-authored the book Mosquito Fleet of Puget Sound in 2008 with Robin Paterson.

The Vashon Heritage Museum’s monthly Museum Talks aim to showcase accessible, relevant, and informative presentations from local historians, experts, and community members.
