James Taylor Carrick was a passenger on the ill-fated S.S. Waratah, which left Durban for Cape Town on July 26th, 1909, and, after being sighted on the following day off Cape Hermes, was not heard of again.

He was educated at Glasgow University, and after eight years of office work in that city, during which he also pursued his studies at the Technical College, he went to Leipzig, where in 1891 he obtained the degrees of D.Ph. and M.A.

In the following year he was appointed metallurgist of the Luhrig Coal and Ore Dressing Go., Germany, whence he went on a prospecting tour in Zululand. In 1895 he became mining editor of the Johannesburg Star, afterwards starting business as a consulting engineer and geologist in that place.

During the South African War, from 1899 to 1902, Mr. Garrick was in Government service, and from 1902 onwards he resumed his practice and acted for many well-known Rand Syndicates; he was the author of geological maps of various parts of the Rand. On 26 July 1909 DR JT Carrick sailed for England from Durban on the passenger steamer SS Waratah. The ship mysteriously disappeared between Durban and East London and he was officially presumed to have died on 27 July 1909. He was married to Helen Frances Sarah Carrick ( Steenberg ).
