Argonauta

Argonauta is a quarterly publication of the Society. Besides serving as the CNRS newsletter, it also provides a place for articles less formal than those which would appear in The Northern Mariner. It is also the best place for queries and small research notes; for example Robin H. Wyllie's articles on Maritime Provinces Steam Passenger Vessels are indexed below.

Contributions may be sent by e-mail to the editor Erika Behrisch Elce.

Starting with Volume XXX, Number 1 (Winter 2013), Argonauta is published on-line. Our latest issue is Argonauta, Vol XXXVIII, No 4 (Autumn 2021). Back issues are available below:
