Runner Now Writing Book about the Commodore

Glenn Cantwell and his wife Kim Adair at the Derby Historical Society


Back in 2008, Glenn Cantwell ran in the Thanksgiving Day race,but we didn't realize just how much of a real interest he had in Commodore Hull - but we do now. Though he did not run last year, he contacted us right after the race about using a picture from the race. It turns out that Glenn is a longtime Early American History collector and enthusiast who has been researching all things Isaac Hull for the past 20 years and will soon publish his first book, "America's Captain of 1812."

Glenn spoke at the Derby Historical Society's Thanksgiving Reception on November 19 about the life of Commodore Hull before a large turnout of people interested in the Commodore's life and achievements.


We'll keep you posted about a publication date!
