The ships and crews of the U.S. Lighthouse Tender Service were the unsung heroes of Great Lakes transportation for more than a century. Yet despite the critical role they played in maritime operations, little information is available about these hard-working men and the ships they called home. Author Paul J. Mason provides an illustrated history of lighthouse tenders that served on “The Lakes,” complete with rare photos and fascinating back stories. Great Lakes history buffs will enjoy learning about these forgotten ships and crews, and their place in maritime’s golden age. “Paul Mason provides us with a taste of the critical function the lighthouse tenders served to ensure the safety of mariners throughout the Great Lakes.” Terry Pepper, co-author of “The Ultimate Guide to West Michigan Lighthouses”

About the Author:

Paul J. Mason developed a love and awe of the Great Lakes while growing up in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Paul’s natural draw to the history of the Lakes grew with his special interest in the U.S. Lighthouse Service, U.S. Lighthouse Tender Service and the U.S. Coast Guard. His grandfather, Richard H. Burdeno, was chief engineer on the USLHT Clover. Paul joined the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and currently serves as a volunteer crew member on a Coast Guard 25-foot patrol boat at U.S. Coast Guard (AUXOP) Station Green Bay (Wisconsin).
