J. H. M. Claggett

J.H.M. Claggett, The Philadelphia & Reading Coal & Iron Co. holds a prominent place among the Buffalo anthracite coal shippers. This company has one of the largest coal shipping docks in Buffalo, and is capable of shipping 10,000 tons of coal per day. Its product is distributed and marketed in all parts of the United States where this commodity is used.

In January, 1894 J. H. M. Claggett accepted the position of Buffalo sales agent for this company, having previously spent three years in the same department of the Philadelphia office. He was born in Frederick county, Maryland, October 25, 1861; and in the schools of his native village received his early education. After attending school for some time in Washington, he entered St. John's College at Annapolis, Md., and there completed his course. At this time he was nineteen years of age, and soon afterwards he entered the employ of the Indiana, Bloomington and Western railroad, being placed in the transportation department. He remained in this department until 1889, when he accepted the position of cashier and paymaster for the Ohio, Indiana & Western R.R., the re-organized Indiana, Bloomington & Western. In this capacity he remained until 1890, when he entered the transportation department of the Big Four. On January 1, 1891, he went to Philadelphia and accepted a position with the company which he still represents, having been promoted to his present position January 1, 1894. With them he now stands as a valuable assistant, and his services are highly appreciated, as his past experiences testify.

Mr. Claggett is unmarried, is a member of the Buffalo Club, and is well known in that city, and enjoys a large circle of friends.

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.
