This 128-page, four-color commemorative history features an early history of the island, the formation of the yacht club, as well as the people and events that have come to define this one-of-a-kind club.

“In 2002, in anticipation of our 100th anniversary in 2005, I began working with George on the Edgartown Yacht Club centennial book. From the very start, it was evident that he was keenly interested in our project and throughout the course of the ensuing three years, he was highly professional, thorough and a delight to work with.

“Every step of the way, George was attentive, an excellent listener, and he adjusted cheerfully to our concerns and questions. Periodic drafts were presented on a timely basis, and his imagination, perspective and expertise added significantly to the overall quality of the final product.

“Without hesitation I can say that our experience with Timelines was extremely successful and a wonderful learning experience, resulting in a very special keepsake for the Edgartown Yacht Club. It is my pleasure to recommend George Brown and Timelines as an excellent resource for commemorative publications.”
