The Chase Machine Company

The Chase Machine Company was organized in September, 1888, for the manufacture of the Chase automatic fog whistle machines, stationary and marine engines, steam pumps, dredging machinery and deck engines, and to do a general business as engineers, machinists and blacksmiths. Later specialties have been vacuum power hammers and drop hammers, automatic hotwater heaters, marble-cutting machinery, and marine machinery of various descriptions. The Chase automatic towing engine, for handling a wire tow line, and automatically relieving it from the extraordinary strains of rough water towing, and the Chase steam steering engine, with hydraulic lock and speed governor, are among the latest and most novel of the Chase patents. This company also builds in considerable numbers a wide variety of hoisting engines for marine and other work, and a special type of three-cylinder mining hoist has been favorably received. Officers of the company at its formation were G.C. BARNES, president; J.L. CHASE, vice-president and general manager; J.H. BALL, secretary and treasurer, and Luther ALLEN and G.E. CHALFANT, also directors. Other directors have been J.H. PANKHURST, Walter MILLER, Robert S. HAY, Charles E. NEWELL, and J.D. KIRBY. Present officers are James L. CHASE, president and general manager; Walter WILLIAMSON, vice-president, and Frederick Metcalf, secretary and treasurer. A biographical sketch of Mr. Chase follows. Mr. Williamson is a skilled machinist of wide experience as foreman and superintendent, and formerly of the firm of Williamson & McDermott Twist Drill Company. Mr. Metcalf is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Mechanical Engineering, and has had eleven years experience, mostly in charge of marine hydraulic work.

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.
