Warrior's MA History Bursar to speak at the North American Oceanic History Annual Conference

We are delighted to announce that Jim Clipson, our MA History Bursar, will be speaking at the North American Society of Oceanic History Annual Conference Charleston, South Carolina in May. Jim will be presenting the outline of his Dissertation; “HMS Warrior’s influence on naval operations in the US Civil War”. He will be discussing how the very existence of HMS Warrior affected the strategy and the operations of the US Civil War even though Warrior never entered US territorial waters nor was there a war between Great Britain and the United States. Jim will update us on his return and we look forward to reading his Dissertation in the autumn. In addition to the Bursary from the Warrior Preservation Trust, Jim received a grant from the Society for Nautical Research to travel to Charleston.
