In an early episode of 'Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea', Edgar Bergen gave a very powerful and, quite frankly, surprising performance as Dr. Arthur Kenner, a renowned psychiatric researcher. Dr. Kenner's expertise lay in the study of Fear, and he was called upon to study the Seaview crew as they traveled deeper into the ocean than ever before.

In a similar situation to that of the two Mary McKinnons, Dr. Kenner may have been related to an Arthur Kenner who became involved in a case being investigated by private eye Jim Rockford. The case revolved around "The House On Willis Street" and can be seen in the TV show 'The Rockford Files'.

Perhaps both Arthur Kenners were, like the two Mary McKinnons, cousins who share the same name.

And Dr. Kenner may have had a grandson who grew up hearing the story about how his grandfather had sailed with the Seaview. And that grandson, if his name was Albert, grew up to become a Lt. Commander in the US Navy and served on either the nuclear submarine Lansing, or the Mako. Both of those subs engaged each other in a potentially deadly game of cat and mouse during a crisis, as seen in the TV movie "Danger Beneath The Sea".

Just a poss'bility.....
