Re: [ancient_waterways_society] Fred Rydholm - R.I.P.
Fred Rydholm left a strong impression on me during the two occasions that I met him. The first was in Wilmington , Ohio . I had the opportunity to learn of his discoveries on UP copper at that AAAPS conference. He explained with a booming voice about the copper discoveries in the Upper Peninsula . His elite skills as an orator were clear when everyone in the conference hall gave him a standing ovation. A standing ovation seemed insufficient at that time. He later asked me at breakfast about the copper discoveries in Mound 34 at Cahokia . He expressed interest in the quantities of copper found there and asked about the evidence of smelting.
The second occasion that I met him was at the Eagle Lodge in the Keweenaw Peninsula . He was unable to stay for the entire conference but we were happy to meet him again.

Ted - here are two videos focusing on Fred Rydholm.

A Tribute To Fred Rydholm
Unfortunately neither one features the content of his lectures. I heard him on a couple of occasions, and he was an unforgettable speaker.
