On Sunday September 19, 2010 Valerie Van Heest entertained and informed a standing room only crowd as she discussed the events before, during and after the tragedy of the Lady Elgin. Valerie’s work as a scuba diver who catalogues Great Lakes’ shipwrecks introduced her to the Lady Elgin. Her fascination grew to further research on various stories that took, and are taking place to this day around the Lady Elgin – the Great Lakes’ worst tragedy.
