C. Castle

C. Castle is perhaps one of the oldest lake engineers, and it has been his favor to have charge of some of the best machinery. He has also received much honor from the Brotherhood of Marine Engineers, having been the second grand chief elected by that body after its organization. His career opened in 1868, as oiler on the steamer Northern Light, J. Kendall, chief engineer, and it is notable among engineers that, being a perfect machinist, he jumped the position of second engineer and was appointed chief in the old Northern Transportation line of steamers; first in 1872 on the Buckeye; in 1873 on the Vanderbilt; in 1874 on the Maine; and in 1875 he was re-appointed to the Vanderbilt; which he laid up at the end of the season and went ashore at Cleveland, taking charge of the rubber works of W. H. H. Peck, where he remained three years. In 1879 Mr. Castle took charge of the engines of the Cleveland Burial Case Company, serving in this capacity three years, when he went aboard the propeller Havana, of the Hanna line, with which he continued for three seasons. During President Cleveland's first term Mr. Castle was appointed engineer at the postoffice, resigning this position to enter the employ of the Rhodes line of steamers. He brought out the steamers R. R. Rhodes, Neosho and Neshota, remaining in this employ until the season of 1890, when he entered the Minnesota line as engineer of the steamer Metoa, on which he served but one season. In 1891 he became chief of repairs and construction for the Corrigan line of propellers and he remained with this line four years, having charge of the Italia one year, and the Aurora three years. In 1895 Mr. Castle took charge of the machinery of the Cleveland Linseed Oil Works. He retired from active service on the lakes in the summer of 1896.

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.
