Check in weekly as we feature snapshots of our fleet and what is was like to serve onboard with #Todayinhistory. Today we feature U.S. Coast Guard Cutter 37 as she moves into action in the Pacific Theater during 1945.

Post Text: April 7, 1945 - USCG Cutter 37 departs the Ulithi Atoll with Task Force 51.8, bound for Okinawa. During the Okinawa Campaign and throughout the summer of 1945, Cutter 37 served as the flagship for Rear Admiral Calvin Cobb, USN.

⚓ In honor of #Womenshistorymonth, we are excited to feature women who have made an impact on Historic Ships In Baltimore! Next up is Lindsay Lowe, a member of our advisory board. Lindsay is one of our newer board members and we are grateful for her perspective and support of our organization!

1️⃣ Why did you join the Historic Ships in Baltimore Advisory Board? I joined in 2019 and so I am one of the newer members of the Advisory Board. My company, Constellation, provides some support to Living Classrooms and so the connection was made that way – when I read the email describing the opportunity to serve on the Advisory Board, I was tremendously excited, I still remember reading that email, that was a great day!

2️⃣ What part of Historic Ships in Baltimore’s mission speaks to you the most?
For starters, I love all things nautical— I love hearing the horn blast of ships leaving the Port of Baltimore from my house in Fells Point, and you can often find me watching the ships at the Domino Sugar Factory and tracking them on the Marine Traffic app on my phone! Historic Ships takes Baltimore’s incredible seafaring heritage and the beauty, tradition, and educational elements of the historic ships collection and provides access to them for all of Baltimore; what could be better than that!
3️⃣ What is your favorite program or event of Historic Ships in Baltimore and why?
I joined the Advisory Board shortly before covid began; however post-pandemic, I very much want to participate in some of the on the water sailing adventures and helping teach the kids of Baltimore about the skills and traditions of life on the water. One of my favorite waterfront activities is taking my kids (ages 5 and 7) exploring on the ships like the USS Torsk or Cutter 37; with our membership, we can check out the ships anytime we are walking by and they always talk about it for weeks to come!
4️⃣ What do you do in your professional life?
I’m in power origination for Constellation, which is part of Exelon corporation, which means I buy and sell forward power contracts. Don’t worry if you don’t know what that means, after 16 years in this business my parents still can’t explain to their friends what I do for a living!
5️⃣ What is your favorite type of ship and why?
I am a sailor, through and through, I have sailed to and from Bermuda over half a dozen times, crossed the Pacific from Hawaii to San Francisco, sailed all over the Caribbean and even sailed traditional sailing pirogues off the coast of Madagascar; but in fact I have great respect for all ships, and at the moment we have a power boat because it’s more manageable with our small kids. The Constellation is such a treasure marking our downtown and providing equal opportunity for all to enjoy its lines and its history. A sailboat is a very special thing because you can travel just about anywhere using the wind as your fuel; sailing provides a great feeling of freedom!

After being recommissioned in 1871 for training purposes, she left her port to come to the aid of the Irish people.

Post Text: March 27, 1880 - USS CONSTELLATION begins a voyage to Ireland delivering famine relief. She continued her duties of carrying supplies to Ireland for the next two months.
