Bartlebys unleashed: ‘Citizen scriveners’ answer maritime society’s call

The Day; January 9, 2021

In its weekly email blast last Sunday, the New London Maritime Society put out a call for help transcribing the 19th century whaler's journal the society's Custom House Maritime Museum acquired last year.

Within a day, 31 people had responded, “citizen scriveners” eager to start deciphering the writing of the anonymous crewman — or crewmen — who chronicled voyages of the bark Merrimac, which sailed from New London on July 17, 1844. At least four more had signed up by the end of the week, Susan Tamulevich, the museum’s executive director, reported Saturday.

It seems she hit on the perfect pandemic diversion.

“I didn’t expect so many,” said Tamulevich, who brainstormed ways to advance the project while recovering from foot surgery. “The society’s email blast goes out to more than 4,000 people every week and we know more than 1,000 people open it. That’s why I put so much effort into it. Plus, we’re on Facebook.”  MORE>>>

Redevelopment in Groton Picks up Speed

CT Examiner, December 9, 2020

For years, plans to redevelop five vacant school buildings in Groton have inched ahead, but with the first project — a 280-unit apartment complex — set to break ground as soon as next year, town officials say they hope that new developments will attract many of the thousands of people who work in Groton, but live elsewhere.

The Town of Groton owns five vacant school properties it would like to sell to developers.

To date, developers have proposed converting two schools into apartments, one into office space and to demolish another to make way for a new mixed-use community with apartments.

The town has received applications for the fifth, Pleasant Valley Elementary, after soliciting bids earlier this year, but the town has not yet selected a preferred developer.

It will be another year at least before work begins at Colonel Ledyard Elementary School. In October, developer Bill Bellock presented plans to build about 80 new apartment units on the site, which has been empty since the school closed in 2008.  MORE>>>
