Wish I was going to be in town this Wednesday so I could hear this presentation on Cotuit during WWII. The town was the site of a amphibious warfare training base, Camp Candoit, located in North Bay. The soldiers practiced their marine landings for North Africa, Sicily and D-Day here. The Cotuit Wikipedia entry blames this camp for a decline in quality of the oysters. Alas, I will be in RTP this week.

I was the one who made that site. I did find a link there about it, although I can’t remember it offhand
Sean Kelly gave the talk on “The History of Camp Candoit” at the Library across the street on 17 July. The Historical Society published it in full, and has copies available at the Dottridge house, or by writing to Box 1484 Cotuit 02635.
