Down But Not Out
Although watermen are almost an "endangered species,"
they are not out yet! In fact, they have their own organization
called the Maryland Watermen's Association. The Association supports
the lifestyle and beauty of living and working on Chesapeake Bay.
The Association publishes a monthly newspaper, the Waterman's Gazette.
This newspaper is also on the web. You can find lots more about
what it is like to be a waterman by checking the web site.
For instance, the June, 1999, issue of the Waterman's Gazzette had articles
on two other "old timers."
Read about either Captain John Edwards
or Charles Stanfield to
compare their lives to Earl White's, the "Admiral of the Bay."
