CHATHAM – The Chatham Marconi Maritime Center is starting a new speaker series in memory of an award-winning journalist.

The Ed Fouhy Distinguished Speaker Series will hold its inaugural event on Thursday, October 15, at the Monomoy Regional Middle School.

Fouhy worked for the news organizations of ABC, CBS and NBC and also served as a volunteer for the Chatham Marconi Maritime Center and produced two videos highlighting the importance of wireless communications for winning the Battle of the Atlantic during World War II and the rescue of RMS Titanic survivors.

Former CBS News correspondent Morton Dean will open the series with a retrospective of Fouhy’s career before featured speaker Dr. Thomas Perera takes the stage.

Perera is an emeritus professor of neuroscience who has spent more than six decades researching World War II communications history and technology.

Earlier this year in Chatham, Perera spoke to a standing-room only audience about the German Enigma cipher machine.

To reserve seats for the event email reservations@chathammarconi.org with a name and the number of tickets requested.

General admission is $10. Students are free with an ID and center members get two free admissions.
