PORTSMOUTH HERALD - On Tuesday Evening, January 8, 1942, reporting: Ten crewmen died when the ship "GENERAL RICHARD ARNOLD", a 98-foot Army minelayer, built in 1909, sprang a leak in a storm about 20 miles southeast of the Isles of Shoals. The ARNOLD sank after successfully saving another Army mineplanter that had suffered engine trouble while heading to Portsmouth. Originally eight crewmembers, mostly civilians, were reported lost. The next day that number was increased to ten.
Saved was William H. Chasteen of Waterford, Conn., commanding the ARNOLD, who jumped from the bridge as the ship went under and was picked up by another disabled mineplanter, the L-88, with a nine man crew, which had been drifting in the storm for more than six hours.
Meanwhile, the Army minelayer ABSOLOM BAIRD which had rushed to the scene and was assisting in towing the disabled L-88, assisted in the search and then started back to its dock at New Castle with the L-88 in tow.
