Herman Melville
"It's Maritime, a program dramatizing the history and color
of the American Merchant Marines.  This is the story of the seas,
of clipper ships and schooners, of flying convoys and liberty ships. 
This is the story of Maritime America."

SchoonerProduced in cooperation with The War Shipping Administration, "It's Maritime" was a once a week feature on WWII show "Service Time" broadcast on Tuesdays.  The show features interludes of patriotic music by The Maritime Service Orchestra, advertisement for joining this war effort, and donating books.

  • The first steamboat to sail across Lake Erie
  • The story of Herman Melville author of the classic American novel Moby Dick —"Call me Ishmael."
  • A fascinating comparison of whaling ships in early American history to whaling ships "today."  We follow the young Ronald McDonald (no relation) as he becomes a whaler. 

It's Maritime features stories from the history of man's adventures on the high seas.  See also WWII Collection, Heroes of the Merchant Marine, Men at Sea, The Man Behind the Gun, and I Sustain the Wings.
