George Campbell

George Campbell, chief engineer of the "Broezel House," Buffalo, was born in that city January 11, 1856, and obtained his education there in the public schools. His father, Hugh Campbell, came to this country from Scotland, in about the year 1848, settling in Buffalo, where he married Margaret Redgriff, from Canada. He was at one time an engineer on the lakes in the old steamer Globe.

The subject of this sketch, after leaving school, at about 14 years of age, served his time as machinist at Pratt & Co.'s Rolling Mill under Robert Learmonth, who was at that time master mechanic. In this employ he remained about eight years, and in 1878 he commenced his career upon the lakes as greaser on the steamer Philadelphia, of the Anchor line, which boat was then known as the "flyer of the lakes" in her line. He worked upon the steamer ten years continuously, rising from the position of greaser to that of second engineer in 1881, and from that to chief engineer in 1883, which position he held until 1888. At the expiration of that period he left the lakes to accept employment as chief engineer of the Weyand Brewery, where he remained until 1895. From this time he was variously occupied until he came to the "Broezel House" in March, 1896. Mr. Campbell was a member of the Marine Engineers Beneficial Association about five or six years; he is now a third-degree Mason, Hiram Lodge No. 105.

Our subject was married May 20, 1884, to Mary Ellen Howard, who is American-born and the daughter of Henry Howard, formerly foreman of the Tift Boiler Works. They have two children, Earl G. and Marjory Ellen. Mr. Campbell has enjoyed more than an average degree of success, and is one of the reliable engineers of Buffalo, New York.

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.
