Hoping to save research time in regard to an ALCC request from Texas (and because our dang website is still down), I'm posting this question:

Anyone know offhand what happened to the LePaute third order, with flash panels rotating around the lens, that was in Sabine Pass Lighthouse until 1952?

Have you tried emailing "Zachary"? He knows a lot about the Gluf Coast lights and has a developing site about them. You should be able to find his email address by looking up his screen name here.

I'm sorry I do not know what happened to the lens. The lighthouse was abandoned in the 50s and if the coast guard didn't remove it then someone probably stole it, the copper roof of the lantern room was stolen. It is definetly not on public display anywhere.
