- "Hell Roaring Mike" Healy: Controversial Captain, with Author Lynn Schooler
Description: This video tapes a presentation at the Alaska State Library about Mike Healy, who was captain of several distinguished revenue cutters, including the Bear, from the late 1800s-1903. Healy was born in Georgia in 1839 to an Irish plantation owner and former slave. He pursued seamanship, rather than academics as his siblings did, and became a regarded enforcer of U.S. interests on Alaskan seas, as well as a nationally recognized hero for daring rescues of wrecked whalers. Healy also participated in the bombardment of Angoon. Later, he was court-martialed for other reasons. - Recorded September 2012.
