This book's 23 colorful biographical sketches of local whaling captains document the role of New London as a whaling port second only to New Bedford. Based upon the biographies that young New London Day reporter Barnard Colby compiled in the 1930s from original documents and family information, this revised version includes an overview of the whaling industry in southeastern Connecticut, lists of all the known local whaling and sealing masters and their voyages, and many intriguing images of New London's whaling waterfront.
