Rare 1988 News Clip of Everett S. Allen - noted journalist and author of "A Wind To Shake The World, The Story of The 1938 Hurricane". The 50th Anniversary of The 1938 Hurricane was commemorated on September 21,1988, with a ceremony at the Hurricane Barrier and the premiere presentation of the video version of his 1976 Best Seller, produced and directed by MLBaron. Over 1,000 attended with a display of emergency vehicles on the grounds. Fairhaven was the official site for Hurricane Preparedness Day in The Commonwealth as proclaimed by Governor Dukakis. In this restored 27 year old video tape are 2 clips from WLNE and WJAR. *ML's Note: Mr. Allen was not privy to being interviewed on camera, including his appearance in any documentary. He was kind enough to oblige for this special occasion. And the rest is history.
