Sea History Magazine

The voice of the National Maritime Historical Society is Sea History magazine. Now in print and online at www.seahistory.org with a wealth of research resources, including a hyperlinked index of every issue since Sea History 001 in 1972, each issue carries fascinating articles about key events and people in our maritime past and the stories of everyday sailors past and present, news of marine archaeology, features on marine art, updates on historic and significant ships in danger of disappearing forever, as well as reviews of the latest books in the field, a calendar of maritime events, museum news and even a section devoted to younger readers.

Population(s) Served

The Society has a long history of involvement in maritime education initiatives, like its monthly NMHS Seminar Series featuring noted authors, historians and artists who celebrate the maritime history of our world. In order to engage students in learning maritime history, NMHS awards cash scholarships for students who complete a project on a maritime topic for National History Day. Sea History for Kids is a popular feature in the magazine that tells the important stories of our maritime past in an engaging, kid-friendly way, and seeks to inspire young people to explore maritime careers . NMHS also supports film production on a broad range of maritime-related topics, including documentary film and biographical tribute videos highlighting the work of outstanding individuals and organizations involved in the preservation of our maritime heritage.

Throughout its history, NMHS has diligently supported the work of the maritime heritage community to bring the message of the importance of our seafaring past to the wider world. We play a significant role in broadening knowledge through maritime heritage conferences and events, partnerships with other maritime organizations, and the formation of numerous maritime groups. We work with the National Maritime Alliance to advocate in Washington for funding for the maritime heritage community. From its beginnings as a small group of maritime preservationists that came together determined to save an 1899 merchant barque, the Kaiulani, the last American-built square rigger to round Cape Horn, NMHS has become the national voice for the preservation of the rapidly dwindling number of historic ships throughout the world. When individual groups work together on achieving mutual goals, our successes multiply and our reach goes farther.
