Historian J. Pennelope Goforth discusses the steamer Dora, which served in Alaska waters delivering mail, transporting food and goods from Southeast Alaska ports to Bristol Bay, and recovering hundreds lost at sea. Dora made her last voyage to Alaska with a green crew when the vessel tragically sunk during the winter of 1920. Goforth is guest editor of Puget Sound Historical Maritime Society’s journal, The Sea Chest, and is the author of Sailing the Mail in Alaska. This is the third talk in the Cook Inlet Historical Society’s 2020-2021 Speaker Series, “Disasters.”
