Charlevoix Historical Society presents Ordeal on the Ice

305 Chicago Ave.,
Charlevoix, MI 49720
(231) 547-0373

On February 8, 1936, Boatswain’s Mate Earl Cunningham interrupted his day off to come to the aid of two stranded fishermen after the ice they were fishing from broke loose and moved out into a Lake Michigan blizzard. Little did he know that he would soon become the only U.S. Coast Guard service personnel from the Charlevoix, Michigan station to ever lose their life at that station in over 100 years. Join local author, historian and Society board member Geoffrey Reynolds as he gives an illustrated account this important local event.
