Bob’s Captivating Speaking Presentations
Bob Doxsee Jr., is a walking, talking, and entertaining connection to Long Island’s commerce and societal history. His speaking presentations are a lively combination of historical pictures, legendary tales of colorful men and women and a reflection on how much life and business has changed on Long Island over the past 150 years. He has the ability to rope the listener in, to the point where you can smell the sea air and taste the salt in the water.
His well-attended and well-received talks presented at local libraries and historical societies captivate the audience as only someone who was there can. Attendees come away with a greater understanding of what it was like to live off the sea on Long Island’s South Shore in the late 1800s and throughout the 20th Century.
“Bob is looked upon as one of the last authorities on western Long Island’s fishing heritage, and the last of a generation that saw fishing as a way of life, rather than a job.”
– Nancy Solomon, Executive Director of Long Island Traditions
