The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
St. Joseph Saturday Herald (St. Joseph, MI), 20 September 1902

Full Text

One of the worst storms of the season raged on Lake Michigan, Thursday, and vessels caught out were much battered by wind and waves. In several instances lives were in peril and the Life-saving crews were constantly on the lookout for the wrecking of samll crafts which happened to be out on the lake. The tug Andrew H. Green, of the Lydon & Drew Co., was prevented from foundering only by the untiring efforts of her crew of eight men. For over fifteen hours the tug was tossed almost helplessly in the trough of the wild sea and her safety was despaired of many times by those on board.
