Ivan Brookes Scrapbook, Unsourced Clipping, June 18, 1953: Boat Capsizes, rescued By Tug. Port Arthur, June 18 – An elderly lighthouse keeper and his young assistant were pulled from the icy waters of Lake Superior Wednesday after their small boat capsized on a trip to the mainland at Marathon 125 miles east of here. Edward Huard, keeper of the Hawkins Island light, and Joseph Archibald, 20, his helper, were rescued by the Marathon Paper Mills tug Allagash as they neared exhaustion after holding on their overturned boat for more than half an hour. A member of the tug’s crew spotted the boat bobbing in the rough water.
