Evenings at the Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum: Catherine Rockett - Salvage Diving

Evenings At The Museum 1

Catherine is a third-year student at Suffolk Law School in Boston, and her

interests include maritime law. On September 8, 2022, at the Nantucket

Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum, she will present the results of her

research on legal issues surrounding the ownership of the wreckage of

the Nantucket Lightship #117 that sank off Nantucket after being rammed

by the RMS Olympic in May 1934.

Ms. Rockett’s discussion will be of interest to divers, lawyers, collectors of

maritime artifacts and anyone following the history of the US Coast Guard

and its predecessor organizations.
