Grandfather’s Ship Models

Record #:
Outer Banks residents might be expected to harbor a yen for hobbies signifying fishing village lifeways. The author’s grandfather reflected the rule in model ship building and decoy carving. He could be seen as a model for his models, some featured in accompanying photos. His works gained recognition outside of the Banks by being published in National Geographic in the 1950s and featured in Ben Dixon MacNeill's The Hatterasman.
