The 1715 Fleet Society is proud to bring you a Video Interview with Dr. Kip Kelso, one of the original Real 8 Company Members.
Kip Kelso was born in 1918 in Atlanta, Georgia. He was a long time resident of the Sebastian/Indian River County area in which he was the last descendent of four generations of physicians. He earned his medical degree at the University of Oklahoma. Together with his friend, Kip Wagner (another original Real 8 member), Dr. Kelso spent long hours doing archival research which ultimately led to the rediscovery and recovery of the ship wrecks of the 1715 Fleet. Dr. Kelso died in 2005.
The video runs 1 hour and 7 minutes.
