“Diving the Montebello” Lecture by Robert Schwemmer

Robert Schwemmer presented historical research he uncovered on the Union Oil Company tanker S S Montebello, which was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in 1941. Schwemmer shared underwater imagery of the sunken ship that sits in 900 feet of water, just south of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Richard Quincy, the last known living crew member aboard the Montebello when it sank, was in attendance.
