Stowe Talbot, the grandson of Archibald Talbot, who owned the Bellingham Shipyard during the World War II, talked about his family’s maritime history, and Mike Granat, Chair and Acting Director at the Bellingham Maritime Museum, talked about the economic impact of Bellingham’s maritime history.

In the first half of the 20th century, Bellingham’s rich maritime history began with the Pacific American Fisheries, a salmon canning operation. The city produced more war ships during World War II than any other and was considered a leader in the introduction of fiberglass into ship building. 

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2013 LCV Cities Tour” in Bellingham, Washington, from December 9-12 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. close
