Tuesday, January 21, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.
Harry P. Haldt III, longtime manager of Pro Musica, compiled and edited Upper To’gallants and Rusty Scuppers after discovering his late father’s 1982 memoir concerning his 1930s high school and college summers spent crewing on seagoing freighters, sailing yachts, and luxury liners. During those summers, H. Peale Haldt Jr., visited ports around the world and embarked on a year-long exchange of letters with the movie actress Dina Merrill, daughter of the owner of one of the yachts.
Published by Haley’s of Athol, Upper To’gallants and Rusty Scuppers contains entries from seagoing logs kept by Haldt Jr. as well as drawings, photographs, luggage decals from around the world, and Dina Merrill’s letters.
Haldt III will autograph copies of Upper To’gallants and Rusty Scuppers, also available for $24.95 a copy at rustyscupperbooks.com, from other online vendors, and from the publisher.
Free and open to the public.
