Edwin J. Law

Edwin J. Law, of Cleveland, one of the younger engineers on the lakes, was born in that city in 1871, a son of Capt. Samuel Law, who was a well-known lake navigator in the earlier days. Mr. Law's experience on the water began when he was thirteen years of age, when he served as fireman on the tug Florence and later on the tug Mary Virginia. Then he was employed successively upon the tugs George Presley, Schnoor, Havana, Patrick Henry, James Amadeus, S.S. Stone, L.P. Smith, Alva B., Dreadnaught, Bolton, and Doan. Since that time he has also been engaged on the sailing yachts Stella R., Penny Press and Silver Spray, both as sailor and captain. He has been engineer of the tugs J.R. Worswick, Maggie Sanborn, Mary and Norman, Englesbe, Harrow and Rainbow. He laid up the Mary and Norman in November, 1896, and then became foreman of Walter V. Metcalf's diving rig at Ashtabula, having charge of everything above the surface while the diver is under water. Mr. Law has also made numerous descents beneath the surface himself and has followed the occupation of diver at odd times for several years, having been employed in this work at Menominee, Wis., Fairport, Ashtabula, Sandusky and Milwaukee.

Volume I


This version of Volume II is based, with permission, on the work of the great volunteers at the Marine Captains Biographies site. To them goes the credit for reorganizing the content into some coherent order. The biographies in the original volume are in essentially random order.

Some of the transcription work was also done by Brendon Baillod, who maintains an excellent guide to Great Lakes Shipwreck Research.
