• At 11 a.m., historian John Carter will speak on “The Hollywood Cruiser: USS Columbia,” discussing Hollywood in the World War II era and the ship’s connections with it, leading to that nickname.
• At 1 p.m., the topic will be “Pacific Valor: The USS Columbia at War.” Relic Room Curator of Education Joe Long will tell stories from the combat career of the ship, through major sea battles and kamikaze attacks to final victory in 1945.
