Abstract:
The Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station Historic Site at Rodanthe on Hatteras Island is the most complete of the few remaining stations on the East Coast. These stations were the predecessors of the Coast Guard Service, and the stories of the daring rescues they performed are legendary. Chicamacomico closed in 1954 after seventy years of service. Today, the Chicamacomico Historical Association keeps the memory of the station and the men who served there alive through living history performances.

Knowland summarizes this program at four universities--Duke, Queens, UNC-Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest.
