Life Saving Station (Later Coast Guard) Logs

Community Outlook January-February 1976

In the article written by the Historical Committee of the Civic Association and printed in the COMMUNITY OUTLOOK of January-February 1975, it was stated that the National Archives in Washington, D.C., contains 96 logs that had been kept by the Life Saving station at Point Lookout after it was established in 1872 and by the United States Coast Guard which succeeded the Life Savers in 1913.

During this past summer, Gerald Boyle and Albert Thompson visited the National Archives. They reviewed a substantial portion of those logs and had photo-copies made of many of the pages. Members of the Historical Committee have been reading this material and preparing some articles for the interest of the community. In future issues of this paper, we plan to cover in detail some of this information that the logs contain.

This is the seventh in a series of articles being prepared by the Historical Committe of the Civic Association.
