About James Clark Anderson

MR. JAMES CLARKE ANDERSON, STAFF CAPTAIN

Staff Captain James Anderson, 50, assisted Captain Turner and was second in command of the ship. Staff Captain Anderson was in charge of the port side lifeboats during the Lusitania sinking, but he did not seem to believe that the Lusitania would sink as fast as she did. Thus, he ordered people to get out of the port side lifeboats after people had already entered them, and many port side boats were not lowered. Staff Captain Anderson was lost in the Lusitania disaster. His body was recovered, number 48.
