The purpose of MARHST-L is to promote communication among persons with a serious interest in maritime history and maritime museums.
This list has, since 1994, provided a forum for ideas and a place where subscribers may ask for information, post notices of meetings, programs for conferences, announcements of new scholarly projects, and queries about particular problems.
Debate should and must be temperate and informed.
The moderators are Walter Lewis, a marine historian and Maurice D. Smith the Curator Emeritus at the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at Kingston. The moderators are "primarily facilitators", on duty to maintain the flow of information on the list.
The support of Queen's University at Kingston, and Canada Steamship Lines is appreciated.
