Diving History In the latest issue of the Wisconsin Underwater Archaeological Society
Diving History In the latest issue of the Wisconsin Underwater Archaeological Society's newsletter, Wisconsin's Underwater Heritage, there is a very interesting article on Wisconsin diving history. On item of particular interest was a mention of a Helium dive being conducted on the wreck of the carferry Lakeland near Sturgeon Bay in 1925. Our belief was that the first operational use of Helium/Oxygen diving was on the USS Squalus in 1939. We have scanned the article and created a pdf file. Click here to view it.
These folks do some great underwater archaeology and historical preservation. You can visit the WUAA website at http://www.wuaa.org.
