Full Text

William Aho, caretaker of the "Port of Missing Men" clubhouse in Wilmette harbor, Sunday morning recovered the body of Mills Crawford, 17-year-old Winnetka boy and student of New Trier High School, at the mouth of the Drainage channel at the foot of Central avenue. Crawford was drowned Saturday, May 21, when a sailing canoe he was operating capsized a mile off the Kenilworth shore. He lost his life in a vain attempt to swim ashore. Charles Chickering, Jr., a companion in the boat, arrived safely on shore after a desperate swim. Crawford was an expert swimmer and a member of the swimming team at New Trier. The canoe was located Sunday by the crew of the U.S. Life Saving station at Evanston.
