Edward F. Croker, Jr.
The portrait herewith, by an unfortunate slip, was printed in the August 2 issue of FIRE AND WATER ENGINEERING with a caption indicating that it was the picture of “Ralph S. Lowy, second vice-president, American Fire Service Corporation.” As a matter of fact, Mr. Lowy retired as an officer of this corporation recently. The portrait really is that of Edward F. Croker, Jr., the president of the corporation. Mr. Croker, who is a son of Edward F. Croker, Sr., former fire chief of New York City, is well known to the chiefs and members of the fire departments of the country, and the error was therefore easily detected. The officers of the company are Edward F. Croker Jr„ president; Charles Unbekant, first vicepresident; Saul J. Rosenthal, secretary and treasurer, and Arthur E. Wolf, chief engineer.
