firefighter John A. SantoreThe Noble Maritime Collection recently dedicated an exhibition to firefighter John A. Santore, who started its volunteer corps, the Noble Crew. From 1992 until 2001, when he was killed at the World Trade Center, Santore was the heart of a volunteer effort that realized over one million dollars worth of donated labor and materials for the rehabilitation of "Building D", the home for the museum. As the project neared completion, Santore suggested that one of the rooms on the third floor of the building be left untouched so people could see what the Crew had done. The "before and after" look of the Noble Crew Exhibition, and the long list of Crew accomplishments it includes are fit testimony to the Crew and to Santore.
