Burl Ives

I knew about Burl Ives property on the Choptank River from 2 places. My father and I were waterfowl hunting on the property just south of his and our guide told us about it. A few years later, mid 1980's, the telco wanted to place a submarine cable landing on his property. He refused and it changed that plan. The existing cable was strapped to the old bridge crossing the river. To work on that cable required using a ladder from a barge type boat. Any mistakes meant going for a swim. They made me wear a life jacket that made it considerably more difficult to do the actual work.

He also had waterfront property in Washington state. I think that is where he died.

I see he was blacklisted as a commie and extreme left winger.
