David Hanson is the curator of the USS Midway Museum in San Diego, a position that he has held since December 2004 (not long after the museum opened to the public). In his spare time, he is a military historian and is the leader of the largest paranormal group in the county (the San Diego Ghost & Paranormal Group), which has over 900 members.
On October 25th, he will give a presentation on the "Ghosts of the USS Midway," in which he will discuss incidents of paranormal encounters aboard the USS Midway both during its active Navy career as well as in more recent years as a museum.
These stories came from USS Midway staff members, visiting guests, and in some cases were personally experienced by himself while he led a professional investigative team around the ship during nine months of paranormal investigations. He considers the USS Midway to be one of the most paranormally active sites in San Diego, though it tries not to dwell upon it. Indeed, disclosures to the public of the USS Midway's hauntings are rare, and do not occur in any print or media.
All programs of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society at the Chula Vista Public Library are free to attend. We encourage community members to attend our meetings. There will be a short business meeting after the presentations, with refreshments afterward.
