Andrew Haas, Jr.

Andrew Haas, Jr., was born July 27, 1869, in Saginaw, Mich., and is a son of Andrew and Pauline (Haller) Haas. The father was born in Bavaria, Germany, November 30, 1826, emigrated to America in 1852 and was married in 1857. He is a boiler maker by trade and has had considerable employment in the manufacture of marine works of that kind. Since 1862 he has been a resident of Saginaw, Mich., and is one of the highly respected citizens of that place. He is an honored member of the Arbeiter Society, which he joined in 1869.

Andrew Haas, Jr., has always made his home in the city of his birth, and there in the public schools he acquired his education. When in his nineteenth year he began his marine life by going on the J.V. Moran as watchman, and the following spring he became fireman on the tug Wilcox. For the next two years he was oiler on the John M. Nichol; was second engineer one year on the Raleigh, one year on the T.L. Vance and two years on the W.H. Gilbert. In the spring of 1896 he shipped as chief engineer on the George Farwell and the following August received the appointment of chief engineer on the Queen City, one of the largest freight boats on the Great Lakes. Mr. Haas is a member of the Marine Engineers Beneficial Association No. 92, of Saginaw, and the United Friends of Michigan. In 1897 he was sent as delegate to represent the first-named fraternity in a convention held at Washington D.C., on January 18, 1897. He is a man whose good habits, great precision and care have won for him the highest respect of a circle of friends and the confidence of his employers. Mr. Haas is unmarried.

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.
