"A ship is safe in a harbor; but that is not what a ship is for."
— Ralph N. Helverson


Working under the guidance of Dr. Marguerite Ragnow, curator of the James Ford Bell Library, this online exhibit was created by Bell Library intern Irene Hamlin. It was based off an older exhibit in Map and Mapmakers created by former Bell Library Curator Dr. Carol Urness. University of Minnesota, May 2014
