Re: “Source Materials

Thank you Gabrielle Gopinath for this in depth article. As a member of the D'Artists of Humboldt group it was especially great to read about our group show at Umpqua Bank. Your comments on my image "At the Waterline #1" captured exactly my intentions when creating this piece. It's really fun to seek out other images for this series that evoke the same sense and feel. Again, thank you! Mary Ann Machi

Re: “Exploring the Historic Sinkyone Wilderness

The home at Bear Harbor is long gone. It's the house at Needle Rock that's the Visitors Center.

Re: “The Sound of Bells

If you're heading towards the east end of the campus via the main parking lot, it's just on the left before the roundabout. There's a plaque as well as marks on the bell.

Re: “The Sound of Bells

Many may not know the story of the bell at the College of the Redwoods. This 3,340 pound bell was cast at Mare Island in 1883 and installed at Alcatraz Island as a fog signal until 1914. After serving the LA Inner Harbor Fog Station from 1915 to 1928 it was relocated to the Carquinez Lighthouse in San Pablo Bay. The bell last served at Shelter Cove from 1936 to 1945. It remained on site but was no longer used as a fog warned after being replaced by an offshore fog whistle and bell buoy. Tony & Mario Machi rescued it from falling off the cliff it perched on in 1964. The Coast Guard became aware of its precarious situation and, under protest from the Machi brothers, gave guardianship to the Humboldt County Historical Society. It was later donated it to the College of the Redwoods where it resides today.
