Joseph E. Garland

The Gloucester Daily Times described Joe as “…journalist and prolific author, sailor, cantankerous citizen, irrepressible rebel and champion of workers’ causes in the adopted hometown his ancestors helped settle…”

To the Gloucester Schooner Festival, Joe was the voice of the Sunday morning Parade of Sail.  Joe’s enthusiasm for supporting the maritime industries and his knowledge of our history made him an engaging announcer as the Schooners sailed past Gloucester’s Fishermen’s Memorial.
