EDWIN P. MARTIN, CDR, USN
Edwin Martin '29
Date of birth: January 25, 1907
Date of death: August 22, 1942
From the 1929 Lucky Bag:
Edwin was lost when USS Ingraham (DD 444) was sunk on August 22, 1942 by a collision with an oil tanker while on convoy duty off the coast of Nova Scotia. Ingraham sank almost immediately, and depth charges on her stern detonated as she went down. Only eleven men survived.
He was the only Lieutenant Commander aboard; he was likely the ship's executive officer.
