Edward Gifford Crosby started out working in a sawmill and saving his money until he managed to purchase his own tugboat. From there he formed a partnership that would led to him owning a shipping line and becoming exceptionally wealthy. This wealth would play a part in his death however, as Captain Crosby would die in the most famous shipwreck 108 years ago today.
