This newspaper photo shows the 1934 “Storm Crew” from that fateful night. From left to right are head keeper William Hill, Fourth Assistant Hugo Hansen, substitute keeper Werner Storm, and first assistant Henry Jenkins seated next to his constructed shortwave radio equipment. All four keepers, and Jenkins in particular, were commended for their “conduct and attention to duty and resourcefulness” during this stressful event. (Courtesy Clatsop County Historical Society.)
