TWO U.C. MEN LOST IN WRECK OF TITANIC

TWO U.C. MEN LOST IN WRECK OF TITANIC

San Francisco Bulletin

BERKELEY, April 20. – Among those who went down with the Titanic is believed to be James E. McGuire [sic], a graduate of the University of California in 1893, and a famous ball player in his college days. McGuire was underground manager of the Simmer mine, near Johannesburg, South Africa, and it is thought he was on his way to his home in Grass Valley, aboard the ill-fated vessel. The name of J.E. McGuire is listed among the first cabin passengers, and does not appear on the list of survivors.

McGuire was a brilliant student, and made a high reputation for himself. In South Africa he organized a baseball nine which won the Johannesburg district championship.

Another Berkeley graduate, Walter M. Clark, of the class of 1907, lost his life, though his young wife was saved.
