Joseph Day, Jr.

Joseph Day, Jr., chief engineer for W. W. Oliver on Niagara street, was born in Buffalo, November 20, 1861, and received his education in that city. His steamboat education was obtained on his father's boats, which plied the waters of the Niagara for many years. Beginning with the year 1873 he was fireman and deckhand with his father for about eight years. In 1881-82 he became engineer of the steam-yacht Black Shelby, and he was in the Mary Day from that time until 1886. In 1886 he was on the Geo. Stauber, for a season. During the winter of 1887 he was engineer of the tug Myrick, at Sarnia, and then returned to Buffalo and engineered the Geo. Stauber again for a period of three years. For the season of 1891 he was engineer of the Sprudel, and on May 15, 1892, he was appointed to the position of chief engineer for W. W. Oliver, where he still remains.

Mr. Day was married, April 14, 1886, to Alice Hammond, and they have two children, Augustus, and Lily. Mr. Day's brother Charles was engineer on the State tug Queen City for the season 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.
