SEABOARD PILOTS SENIORITY LIST

Revised May 6, 2020

For the first nine years of Seaboard's operation, pilots' seniority was not assigned strictly according to date of hire. Numbers 1 through 97 (Meyers), except for names followed by an asterisk, are listed in accordance with the final findings of the Seaboard & Western Pilot's Special Seniority Board, dated 13 October 1956.

Some pilots who left the company prior to 1956 do not appear on any available seniority list. Their names were listed on company "personnel distribution" sheets. As they become known through examination of Seaboard newsletters and online crew manifests, they are added with blue dates indicating that the actual date of hire is unknown. The blue date is that of the earliest manifest found as yet listing that person as a Seaboard crewmember or a mention in a newsletter. Their position on the list is an estimate of where they would be if, had they remained, based on the date shown. Those with an asterisk after their name left before the Board's determination.

An asterisk in the date of hire column indicates uncertainty about exact location on list. Pilots for whom there is no date information are listed at bottom of list.
