johnross Folklore: Job description for a lighthouse keeper (42) RE: Folklore: Job description for a lighthouse keeper 13 Jan 04


I have a copy of the U.S. Light House Servce "Instructions to Light Keepers" from about 1908. Along with the other maintenace tasks, one important item is (quoting from memory): "The Keeper shall assure that visitors to the light do not carve their initials into the lens."

I have to assume that this must have been a real problem.
