    Biography Note

  • Art McKee (1910-1980) was civil engineer who searched for sunken treasure in the Florida Keys. In 1937, he was shown by a local fisherman the wreckage off Plantation Key that turned out to be the remains of Spanish treasure ship, the Capitana, El Rubi Segundo which wrecked in 1733. For years, he and his men searched the wreckage, eventually opening on Plantation Key the first museum dedicated to excavated wrecks the Sunken Treasure Museum.
