Jacksonville native Dr. Keith Holland’s passion for history has always been prevalent, but his interest in underwater shipwrecks was piqued when his brother-in-law made trips to Florida to dive in the springs. In 1980, Holland began his research and began checking off shipwrecks that had been documented and found in the area — but one ship in particular, the Maple Leaf, sank off Mandarin Point more than a century ago and had never been found. Even retrieving official records with information on the vessel proved extremely difficult. With persistence, Holland eventually found the one-inch Maple Leaf file, and he began speaking with others to gain his own conclusion that the Maple Leaf did indeed still remain at the bottom of the St. Johns River.
