F. P. Gordon

The name of F. P. Gordon is one of prominence in marine circles, as is also the name of his father, John Gordon. Early in life, as may be seen by this sketch, F. P. Gordon turned his attention to marine and transportation affairs; and his life, thus far, has been spent in that line of work.

Mr. Gordon was born at Detroit, November 5, 1866, and in that city he lived until his sixth year. His father then moved to Duluth, taking the family and remaining eight years. The following thirteen years were spent in Chicago. At that place he entered the employ of the Anchor line, in his twentieth year, and remained two years as clerk. Following this time he spent three years as purchasing agent for the Goodrich Transportation Company. Upon leaving the Goodrich Transportation Company he entered the bank of Meadowcroft Bros., in Chicago, and remained until the death of Robert Meadowcroft. He then came to buffalo, and accepted the position as assistant manager with the Northern Steamship Company. In this place he remained until September, 1895, spending much time in Cleveland during the building of the North Land and the North West, over which he had charge. In August, 1895, he resigned from the Northern Steamship Company, and in the spring of 1896 opened a branch house for Johnson & Higgins. This firm is well known throughout the United States, having offices in the leading cities.

On December 3, 1890, our subject was married to Miss Grace Meadowcroft, daughter of Robert Meadowcroft, of Chicago. Mr. and Mrs. Gordon have one daughter, Miss Catherine. The family reside at No. 1109 Delaware avenue, 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.
