Captain Joseph Lamoreaux

Captain Joseph Lamoreaux


...had nightmares about the tragedy...

Captain Joseph Lamoreaux was born in French Canada.  At the time of the Eastland Disaster, he was employed by the Great Lakes Towing Company and was captain of the tug Indiana.  His tug arrived at the scene of the tragedy minutes after the Eastland capsized, and captain and crew assisted in the rescue and recovery efforts.

For several months after, Captain Lamoreaux had nightmares about the tragedy.  He also did not care to discuss the tragedy.
