Submarine Century: A History of the Groton Submarine Base, May 11, O.Lyme;

Education/Lectures

Old Lyme Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library, 2 Library Lane, Old Lyme, , 06371

7 p.m., please join us as we celebrate Connecticut's Submarine Century with a presentation at the Old Lyme – Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library on Wednesday May 11, 2016 at 7 pm. We will take a look back at the history of the Groton submarine base. Eury Cantillo, Director of Education at the Submarine Force Museum, has combed the Museum's collection to create a photographic journey through history. The talk will include aerial photos through the decades, pictures of President Franklin Roosevelt's visit in 1940, early historic views of the base including the evolution of the waterfront and memories from each era from WWI through the Cold War. Learn why Groton was chosen to be the site of the country's first submarine base and why Groton is the "Submarine Capital of the World."

Eury Cantillo was born and raised in Connecticut and earned a Master's degree in education from UCONN. He served as an officer in the US Army where he took part in Operation Iraqi Freedom during a 15 month deployment to Ramadi, Iraq. He's worked in various museums including Plimoth Plantation, the former Higgins Armory Museum and a replica of one of Columbus' ships the Niña, which he helped to sail through the Panama Canal and up the Pacific coast of Mexico. Most recently he was a Park Ranger for the National Park Service where he worked at the Lexington and Concord Battlefield, the cliff Dwellings at Mesa Verde, and the memorials in Washington, DC. He is now the Director of Education at the Navy's Submarine Force Museum in Groton, CT.
