Dr. Helen

Doe

Dr Helen Doe is a historian, author and speaker with a particular love of maritime subjects.

It is people, often the ordinary and, sometimes unsung, heroes and heroines that attract her attention.

Her latest book, The First Atlantic Liner, features the stories of the passengers and crew on Brunel’s first ship which linked Bristol, Liverpool and New York. Fighter Pilot is her biography of a Battle of Britain Pilot and it was warmly reviewed and became a best seller.

She was co-editor and major contributor to the award-winning The Maritime History of Cornwall and her PhD research led to the groundbreaking Enterprising Women in Shipping in the Nineteenth Century.

She has appeared on many Radio 4 programmes and on TV. A well-known speaker, she is much in demand as a cruise ship guest lecturer and is an accredited lecturer for the Arts Society (previously known as NADFAS)
