New York Times

Wireless operator on Titanic Young, but a Veteran in Service
---
The man who sent out the wireless call for help from the damaged Titanic was J. G. Phillips, an Englishman, 24 years old, who had been in the employ of the Marconi Company as an operator for about five years. He went to the new vessel from the steamship Oceanic.

Mr. Phillips's wireless service had taken him into many parts of the world. He was formerly the Marconi man on James Gordon Bennett's yacht. Entering the transatlantic service he was assigned to the Oceanic. Before going on the Bennett yacht Mr. Phillips had served on a P. & O. steamship running to the Orient.
