The Schimmel Digital Archive
Through the generosity of Herbert and Ruth Schimmel, the Mel Fisher Maritime Heritage Society is able to complement a tremendous collection of artifacts from shipwrecks of the colonial period with contemporary documents, prints and maps.
Among these are items relating to exploration, commerce and technology, with an emphasis on early Caribbean history, the Transatlantic Slave Trade, and the Florida Keys.
Schimmel Digital Archive consists of an on-line selection
of the many documents they have donated to the MFMHS.
