An unusually gifted photographer, Edwin Levick (1869-1929) came to America in 1899 from London and contributed his photographs to the Chicago Tribune, the New York Times, and the New York Herald Tribune, as well as Rudder and Motorboat Magazine. His experience led him to specialize in maritime photography, and he established a successful photography studio. In 1929, at the time of his death, his hometown newspaper, the New Rochelle Standard called Levick "the best known maritime photographer in the nation.... a genuinely artistic soul."
