Time-coded reference copy of EDMUND FITZGERALD underwater footage (May 1976) and launch (June 1958)

There is about 10 seconds of interview footage. Following this is 5 minutes of footage of the launch of the Edmund Fitzgerald. The tape ends with 2 minutes of still and moving images of the Edmund Fitzgerald before the wreck.

Launching of S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald

This silent film shows the launch of Hull 301 (Edmund Fitzgerald), built by Great Lakes Engineering Works in 1958. There are several crowd shots, presumably of people who came to watch the ship being launched. Footage consists of pre-launch shots of the ship's flag and hull, as well as the launch itself.

[Edmund] Fitzgerald Canada AM

Joseph MacInnis appeared on Canada AM in 1994 to discuss the expedition to the Edmund Fitzgerald. He was interviewed about the circumstances of the Fitzgerald shipwreck, the expedition to the wreck, and how the expedition fits into his research on pollution in the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River.

Edmond [sic] Fitzgerald - Bell Ceremony

This tape contains two unrelated segments of unedited footage. The first 3 minutes and 50 seconds consists of parts of the Edmund Fitzgerald bell ceremony, during which the names of the crew members who perished on board the ship were read and family members were invited to come up to the stage and ring the ship's bell. The ceremony also consisted of speeches and an amateur bagpiper's performance of Amazing Grace. The second part of the tape shows the process of launching and retrieving manned submersibles from a ship (most likely either HMCS Cormorant or the Edwin Link).

This tape contains three distinct segments of footage. The first consists of unedited footage of the launch of a Newt Suit dive unrelated to the Edmund Fitzgerald expedition. The second consists of unedited but directed footage of a man, presumably John McCarthy, and an unidentified woman along a walkway close to the lake. The third part features Ruth Hudson, whose son Bruce was a crew member on the Edmund Fitzgerald. She was filmed both outside and inside her home, and is shown with a photo of Bruce.

Tape 1 of 3 [Industrial interior of ship? / Shipbuilding yard / Replacement bell for Edmund Fitzgerald / Submersible launch at night; Newt Suit]

This tape consists of four separate segments of unrelated, unedited footage. The first shows an unidentified industrial interior (probably a ship) and lasts approximately two minutes. The second portion contains 28 minutes of footage of a woman being directed to walk around the exterior of the ship Mapleglen in a ship yard. The third segment was filmed on the HCMS Cormorant and shows the replacement bell for the Edmund Fitzgerald (inscribed with the names of the lost crew members), and a group of schoolchildren being told about the wreck and the significance of the bell. It is six minutes and 46 seconds long. Lastly, the fourth segment contains footage of a nighttime submersible launch, as well as footage of a Newt Suit on board a ship.

Edmund Fitzgerald footage #2

The footage on this tape was taken on the ships HMCS Cormorant and Anglian Lady during the project to recover the Edmund Fitzgerald's bell (to be housed at the Whitefish Point memorial at the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum) and install a replacement bell, inscribed with the names of the lost crew members, on the wreck. On the Cormorant, crew members are seen at the controls, communicating with pilot and observer(s) in a manned submersible, either the SDL or the Pisces. After the sub was recovered onto the Cormorant, interviews were conducted with a representative from Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute and the Cormorant's Senior Diving Officer about the significance of recovering the bell. The footage from the Anglian Lady is primarily of the recovery of the Edmund Fitzgerald bell and the Newt Suit diver who retrieved it.

Edmund Fitzgerald

The items in this series all have to do with the ship the Edmund Fitzgerald, which sank in Lake Superior on November 10th, 1975. The recordings concern the 1994 expedition led by Dr. MacInnis and his team’s efforts to find an answer for the demise of the vessel. Included are all stages of the cinematic process from raw footage to feature length films, as well as television and radio interviews about the ship and the process of recording the ship.

[Edmund] Fitzgerald, sub u/w [underwater] - Lights, bow waves, both Tims in sub

This tape consists of three different segments of footage. The first shows a submersible beginning its dive from the perspective of a scuba diver (responsible for guiding it initially?) holding a video camera. The second segment is a shot of waves alongside a ship's hull caused by the ship's movement through the water. The third and final portion of the tape shows two males and one female on board a submersible. They are navigating around the starboard bow of the Edmund Fitzgerald wreck, discussing what they are seeing.
