Portland Press Herald: Susan Clark was a pioneer on the waterfront

The Portland Press Herald’s feature obituary on Sept. 11 is about Capt. Susan Clark, an accomplished shipmaster who became the first female pilot for Portland Harbor and the first woman to join the elite Portland Marine Society.

Clark attended the University of Maine School of Law and Seton Hall Law School in the early 1990s.

Clark, who died Thursday after a brief battle with cancer, had worked for Portland Pilots Inc. since 2001 and piloted more than 1,000 ships into Portland Harbor.
