A Long Career

From The Montreal Gazette on this day in 1944:

Southampton, England - (CP) - The man who docked the liner Queen Mary for the first time and who was Southampton's oldest [harbor] pilot, 66-year-old Capt. George Bowyer, died recently from a heart attack.

In 1912 Bowyer was on board the Titanic, guiding her out of Southampton waters.
