Spring Speaker Programs featuring Jack Rudloe

The Apalachicola Area Historical Society (AAHS) will be presenting another one of their fascinating Spring Speaker Programs featuring Jack Rudloe on Saturday, May 18, 2024 at 4:00 pm at the Raney Carriage House, 126 Market Street, Apalachicola, FL.

Jack Rudloe is the founder of Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratory in Panacea, Florida, a unique environmental education center and public aquarium that supplies marine organisms to schools and research laboratories. He is the author of seven well-known books on Florida natural history and marine life. Jack has published articles in National Geographic Magazine, Smithsonian, Sports Illustrated, Natural History, Audubon, and other magazines. He achieved the first live exhibit of the world’s largest isopod, the deep-sea giant sea roach. He was instrumental in the New York Aquarium’s exhibit of the giant Surinam toadfish, also a first. He traveled to Malaysia and The People’s Republic of China as a representative of the U.S. International Trade Commission to develop fisheries cooperative agreements. He participated in teaching the first field marine biology class offered at the University of Central America, Managua, Nicaragua.

These Speakers events are part of a well-established and popular series by the Apalachicola Area Historical Society with speakers through May on Saturdays, mid-month, at 4pm. Local and tourist history enthusiasts have gathered for these informative talks for a number of years. Previous speakers have spoken about Apalachicola’s predominantly African American North Side, Territorial City St Joseph, Early Maps of the area, Niles Register Florida History, the ice delivery industry, Cemetery Preservation, Apalachicola Historic Squares and more.
