Titanic Lookout. He was assigned to the Titanic's crow's nest along with lookout Reginald Lee at the time of the ship's collision with an iceberg on the night of April 14, 1912. He sounded the initial alarm of "Iceberg right ahead" to Sixth Officer James P. Moody stationed on the bridge of the Titanic. He survived the sinking after being assigned as a rower to lifeboat six which contained socialite Margaret "Molly" Brown, and Titanic Helmsman Robert Hichens. He arrived in New York City on April 18th on board the rescue ship Carpathia. He appeared as a material eyewitness before both the United States Senate and the British Board of Trade. Prior to joining the Titanic he served as a seaman and lookout on board the vessel Oceanic. Following the disaster he served briefly on board Titanic's sister ship Olympic before leaving the White Star Line. He continued in the maritime industry over the next 24 years working for various shipping companies. Following his career at sea he went to work for the Harland and Wolff Shipyards in Belfast, Northern Ireland as a shipbuilder, ironically the same company that had built both the Titanic and Olympic. Deeply depressed following the death of his wife Eva, he committed sucide shortly after her death by hanging himself at his brother-in-law's home at the age of 77.
