Peter Whittemore

Peter WhittemoreWhittemore said, “The chance to see New Bedford harbor, coming in…on a whaling vessel is an opportunity of a lifetime for one like me whose blood lines run in the rigging.” Whittemore is Herman Melville’s great-great-grandson and brings not only a familial connection, but a real concern for the ocean environment and its role in sustainability for all species.  He studied English at Harvard as an undergraduate and earned his M.Div. at the Harvard Divinity School. Whittemore regards the Charles W. Morgan as an “instrument of instruction” with potential to bring attention to important contemporary issues as well as connections to the whaling industry as an example of American industrial fervor in the 19th century.
