William Claude David Crombie

M, b. 8 January 1881, d. 26 August 1956
William Claude David Crombie
(1881 - 1955)
as a baby
Claude Crombie's signature
     William Claude David Crombie always called Claude Crombie. He was born on 8 January 1881 in Simla, India, though the registration of his death gives a date four days earlier.1 He was the son of Lt. Colonel Alexander Crombie CB, MD and Zébée Minto Bell.2 William Claude David Crombie married firstly Edith Mary Lawrence in 1908. On his Officer's Declaration for the Canadian Expeditionary Force, dated 22 October 1917, Capt. Crombie gives his address as Winnipeg, Manitoba and his wife's as being in Vancouver, British Columbia. He appears to have about four and a half years of military service, the first three years with the 27th Light Horse. He gives his trade or calling as "farmer." William Claude David Crombie married secondly Florence Wilson. William Claude David Crombie died on 26 August 1956 in North Vancouver at the age of 75.3

Major William Claude David Crombie was The Shipping Federation's labour manager. A farmer from Saskatchewan, member of the 27th Light Horse based in Moose Jaw, and a veteran of the Great War, Crombie was hired by waterfront employers right after the war to look after 'protection and protective measures' during the tumultuous days of the national labour revolt. During the 1923 strike, he was the personal driver and bodyguard for several members of the Shipping Federation and, at the tail end of the fifty-three day conflict, 'took over the employment end of the game' as despatcher. A year later he was promoted to labour manager, a position that paid approximately $350 per month, which was about three times what the highest-earning longshoreman earned. 'Industrially the Federation is attempting to work along new lines and I must give the members of the Federation all credit in backing up my proposals and schemes in many cases,' Crombie wrote to a friend in Regina shortly after assuming his new job, 'cases| which may appear to some of the old employers of labor unusual and unconservative.' Although the composition of the Shipping Federation's board of directors changed constantly over the course of the 1920s and 1930s, Crombie remained labour manager throughout this entire period. As a consequence, he played a pivotal role in the organization's shift to welfare capitalism and decasualization. Some considered him the 'King Bee of the Waterfront,' a nick name that captured his heightened stature on the job [after the 1923 strike. 'Major Crombie was the main guy,' longshoreman Harry Walters recollected. 'You had to go to him if you wanted in the union.' Andrew Parnaby, Citizen docker: making a new deal on the Vancouver waterfront, 1919-1939, p. 20.

Mr. William David Crombie, Maranthona, Longreach, died in Brisbane on February 24, aged 66.

A popular grazier of the Central-west for many years, the late Mr. Crombie commenced his pastoral life as a jackeroo on Greenhills and Kensington Downs, which were owned by his relatives.

Later he acquired the sole rights of the property, and was active in its management until a few months ago.
Mr. Crombie was a member of Longreach Shire Council for 20 years, and in his work for the community was as efficient as he was in the management of his own property. In 1913 he married Miss Janet Wilma Macdonald, of Brisbane, who with two sons and two daughters survives him. The sons are Mr. Mac (Bimerah, Longreach) and Dr. A. Crombie, Ph.D., a research scientist at Cambridge University. The daughters are Mrs. Nancy Macdonald (Peachester) and Mrs. Margaret Bell (Brisbane). Queensland Country Life, 10 March 1949.3

"Mrs. Emma D. Sewall, widow of Hon. Arthur Sewall, died Monday morning at her summer home at Small Point where her husband died Sept. 5, 1900. She was stricken Sunday and never regained consciousness. Mrs. Sewall was born in Bath, a daughter of Charles Crooker, Esq., one of the early Bath shipbuilders and was married to Mr. Sewall in 1859. She leaves two sons, Hon. Harold M. Sewall and William D. Sewall, both of Bath."

As her great-great-grand-daughter Abbie Sewall noted in a July 1988 article on her grandmother in Down East Magazine there is no indication of her success as a photographer. She took up the art as an adult of forty-eight and did very well with it. She exhibited her work in Paris and was the first women to be invited to join the Boston Camera Club, but virtually stopped photographing with her husband's death. She resigned from the Club and led a largely reclusive life until her death nineteen years later.7
