In Memory of George Kaiser – Model Ship Builder

I met George Kaiser back in 2007 at an event in Winthrop, MA that I was photographing.  I learned he was a model ship builder and asked for his card. A few months ago I contacted George to see if he was was still building model ships and if so, could I interview him. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of  spending a few hours with him learning about his adventures into model ship building. Here is the interview we did along with a few photos of his models and workspace that are referred to in the interview. Sadly, George passed away February 16, 2015.

What a fascinating life journey Mr. Kaiser has had and is having at a
young 87. From the Depression, through WW II to the current. He is so  modest
about his artistic skills and you really captured his charm in this
interview. I will go see his model at the Constitution Museum. Your photos  are great
and makes me yearn to own one.
Thank you for sharing this, it made my day.
Hope to see you soon.Sally Higbee
