The Headwaters Center for Lifelong Learning presents Dick Roue speaking on “Shipwrecks of the Great Lakes” on Tuesday, March 29.

The event is scheduled from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at the Armory Arts and Events Center in downtown Park Rapids.

In 1975, the Edmund Fitzgerald went to the bottom of Lake Superior without even a single SOS call. Using investigative techniques learned in a quarter-century of law enforcement, Roue has weighed every point against provable or verifiable facts.

He doesn’t claim to have answers to all the questions, but he does provide interesting and thought-provoking ideas about what happened that fateful night.

Roue will also discuss other shipwrecks on the Great Lakes, including the Bradley, the Morrell, the Cedarville and the Carruthers.


The program is free and open to all, and the venue is handicap accessible.
