    Maritime museums: who needs them?
    From: Frank Reed

    "Maritime Museums: Who Needs Them?" is the title of a facinating article, published by the Nalanda-Sriwijaya Center in Singapore, written a few years ago by Stephen Davies who had been the director of the small maritime museum in Hong Kong. He discusses the great ethnic disparity in interest in maritime history around the globe and the broader question 'why does anybody care about maritime history in the first place?'. What drives this interest? Where does the romance of sailing originate? Here's a link to the article: http://nsc.iseas.edu.sg/documents/working_papers/nscwps011.pdf. Any thoughts?
