Loren Steffy will be at the Houston Maritime Museum to present "The Man Who Thought Like a Ship" on Tuesday, August 21st, from 7-8pm at 2204 Dorrington, Houston, TX 77030.
Loren Steffy is an acclaimed author and the business columnist for the Houston Chronicle. His latest book, "The Man Who Though Like a Ship," commemorates his father, J. Richard “Dick” Steffy's amazing contribution to the field of maritime archaeology.
Dick Steffy, an electrician in a small, land-locked town in Pennsylvania armed only with a self taught understanding of ships volunteered for the job of piecing together 6,000 ancient sunken ship fragments. Although he held no advanced degrees, Dick found himself half a world away from his home town, planning to reassemble a ship that last sailed during the reign of Alexander the Great by using mathematical formulas and modeling techniques that he’d developed in his basement as a hobby.
