Event Details

Benjamin Franklin drew the first map of the Gulf Stream, knowing that it aided ship travel to and from Europe - an important consideration when he was a deputy postmaster for the British colonies. Dr. Deborah Steinberg, a biological oceanographer from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, tells how ocean currents like the Gulf Stream affect the biology of the oceans today.

This program is free of charge thanks to a grant from Friends of Williamsburg Regional Library and does not require tickets or reservations.  For more information on all Franklin programs call (757) 259-4070 or visit www.wrl.org/programs/franklin.html.

The traveling exhibit, "Benjamin Franklin: In Search of a Better World," is organized by the Benjamin Franklin Tercentenary, Philadelphia, in cooperation with the American Library Association’s Public Programs Office, "Benjamin Franklin: In Search of a Better World" was made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
