I am writing a book about the Lake Erie shore where I grew up. Research has told me that the lighthouse was automated in 1979. Eli Martin was the last keeper listed for 1938-39. How did the Coast Guard manage the lighthouse from 1939 until 1979? I would appreciate any information you might have.
Thank you
