Samuel T. Crush (c1869-1930)

1930 Obituary[1]

"The Late Mr. S. T. Crush.—We regret to record the death of Mr. Samuel T. Crush, which occurred suddenly last week. Mr. Crush, who was 61 years of age, was well-known to the majority of marine engineers and naval architects, and his genial personality endeared him to a wide circle of friends. He was head of the shipbuilding and boiler department of Messrs. Yarrow and Company, Limited, a position previously held by his father, the late Mr. William Crush. Mr. S. T. Crush was closely identified with the development of high-speed vessels and the Yarrow water-tube boiler, and had been associated with Messrs. Yarrow for nearly fifty years. He was a director of the company and was actively engaged in business up till the day of his death. He was elected a member of the Institution of Naval Architects in 1916. He is survived by his wife, a son, and three daughters, the son having joined Messrs. Yarrow four years ago, and being now in charge of their boiler department."
