It is with great regret that we report the passing at River District Hospital, on Thursday, February 26, 1987, of Frank R. Crevier, 76, of Algonac, Michigan.

Frank had worked for many years as a civilian for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and he had travelled extensively. His main love, however, was always lake shipping. He was a longtime member of T.M.H.S. and a number of other marine historical groups. He was a founding member of the Lake Huron Lore Marine Society, Port Huron, and served until the time of his death as editor of its publication, "The Lightship". He also was the instigator of The Great Lakes Society for the Preservation of Side Ship Launching, a group that organized excursions to Collingwood in celebration of that yard's famous side launches. Frank was also an artist of rather considerable repute, producing many extremely detailed line drawings of various lake vessels, many of which were published as hand-coloured prints.

Frank was an extremely affable gentleman, and we shall miss him. We extend our deepest sympathy to Dixie, his wife of 49 years.
