Adolph, age 21, perished in the S.S. Eastland Disaster on the Chicago River. Adolph was employed as an electrician at Western Electric. Survivors include his parents, Soren Christian Laursen Locke and Vibeke Mariane Olesen Locke.

A lake passenger steamer, the S. S. Eastland had been chartered by Chicago's Western Electric Company to transport the company's employees (and their families), to their annual picnic in Michigan City, Indiana.

At 7:28 a.m., still moored to her Chicago River dock and with 2,572 people on board, the S. S. Eastland began to list. The steamship managed to briefly right herself before slowly rolling on her side.

844 people died that day in what would turn out to be Chicago's worst disaster ever.
