Course Description

 

Dan Radel, journalist, historian

The Jersey Shore experienced terror in the summer of 1916 when four people were fatally mauled and another seriously injured by a shark attack. The deadly encounters were mentioned in the blockbuster movie Jaws, which premiered in 1976. While that summer certainly stands out, bathers in New Jersey waters have been nipped and bit by sharks at multiple locales since and as recent as this 2023. Come and spend an afternoon with historian and local journalist Dan Radel as he recounts these stories and others.
