Ferdinand R. Harding, center, past Commodore of the First Coast Guard District Auxiliary, points to the lighthouse in the artist’s conception of the proposed Mystic Seaport Lighthouse and keeper’s house at a ceremony in New York where he and Bliss Woodward (left), who was the National Commodore of the Coast Guard Auxiliary form 1960-1961, presented a check for $5,000 in 1964 to Franklin Cole of the Mystic Seaport Museum. The money came from donations of Coast Guard Auxiliary members from Maine to Delaware to be used to build the keeper’s cottage to go with the lighthouse to be built on the museum grounds.
