Joseph C. Lincoln –
A Captain’s Son Writes of Cape Cod
Speaker Bob Heppe
Tuesday, January 12, 2021 – 5:00 PM
Join the Atwood for an insightful virtual lecture about the famed and prolific author, Joseph C. Lincoln. Our speaker, Bob Heppe, has been a docent at the Atwood Museum for the past three years. As part of his duties, he has responsibility for the Joseph C. Lincoln gallery. Understanding that a good docent needs to know his subject, he has collected and read 38 novels, 2 books of short stories, and 1 book of verses. He does not claim to be an expert on Mr. Lincoln, just an ardent enthusiast. He is especially indebted to Katherine Manson, Atwood archivist and Joe Lincoln expert, for her help in preparing him for this talk.
Bob is a retired attorney and a retired Colonel, US Army. He now spends his leisure time as a docent at the Atwood, a member of the marine mammal rescue team for IFAW, a member of the Coast Guard auxiliary and as Master of the Pilgrim Masonic Lodge. He works as the first mate on the Harwich Port to Nantucket Freedom ferry. He lives in Harwich Port with his wife Gaylene, docent and volunteer manager of the Atwood Gift Shop.
