The Shipwrecked Ring of John C. Calhoun

Plodding Through The Presidents

The Shipwrecked Ring of John C. Calhoun

This episode’s deep dive takes us to the bottom of the Pacific where a relic belonging to the family of John C. Calhoun was discovered 61 years after it was lost. We explore how it was lost during the tragic Honda Point Disaster and the story of the man who discovered it—and the target it put on his back. And it all starts with a little street in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles named Calhoun Avenue.
