Robert McGreevy, Marine Artist/Historian
“Vanished with a Trace, what really happened to the Griffon” The story to the Great Lakes most famous and mysterious shipwreck, an in depth study that answers the questions, why did LaSalle build her, was it only for the fur trade, exploration, or was there another more far reaching purpose for her and did this have anything to do with her disappearance. What were the mysterious three fires? These questions and more will be discussed as Robert McGreevy takes us along on the final and only voyage of the Griffon. Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Robert McGreevy is a Great Lakes historian and marine artist whose family history is steeped in the shipbuilding industry. McGreevy’s grandfather and father worked for Harland & Wolff, Belfast’s biggest shipbuilder; additionally, in 1912, his grandfather worked on the building of the Titanic. During his formative years and surrounded by talk of shipbuilding, McGreevy began building models and sketching ships.
