EDMUND W. EGBERT, ENS, USN
Edmund Egbert '23
Date of birth: August 9, 1901
Date of death: September 25, 1925
From the 1923 Lucky Bag:
Edmund was lost on September 25, 1925 when USS S-51 (SS 162) was sunk immediately following a collision with the merchant ship SS City of Rome while operating on the surface south of Newport, Rhode Island.
He was one of 36 officers and men aboard the submarine; only three survived.
Edmund is buried in the US Naval Academy Cemetery.
Unable to find next of kin information, but someone representing his estate had a lawsuit against the US Government; the Supreme Court declined to hear it in early 1929.
