English Professor John Bryant is one of 79 scholars invited to sail on the Charles W. Morgan, an 1841 whaleship. After having been the centerpiece exhibit at the Mystic Seaport Museum for more than 80 years, the Morgan was re-fitted for sailing and staffed with a professional crew and noted artists, historians, scientists, journalists, teachers, musicians, scholars, and whaling descendants along for the ride. Dr. Bryant is one of the world’s foremost experts on Herman Melville, and the Morgan is a “sister” ship of Melville’s first whaling vessel, the Acushnet.
