  • Anecdote*: In his younger days he fished and later worked on lobster smacks running between NS and New England. After advancement to captain, he moved to the US. When the US entered WWI, he obtained an unlimited license as master in steam and sail. He was given command of S.S. CHESTER KIWANIS, owned by the US Shipping Board and operating between American and French ports. On a return trip from Boulogne, Fr to NY, he anchored at Staten Island for quarantine. Late in the evening a knife and club fight started in the crew, and when Job found out he immediately took charge. He was large and powerful, and grabbed the ringleaders one at a time and sent them sprawling. One man bit him severely on the wrist, so when he had been cared for, he called the police. They asked what action he wanted them to take, and he said "Well, I guess the fight is pretty well knocked out of them now, but I'd like to line up the worst of them on the after deck and give them a good dose of boots - wherever you think it will leave a good mark of remembrance." The next morning NY papers acclaimed the "giant Down East captain" a hero. As a result he was promoted to command a much larger ship, the S.S. LUXPALILE, owned by the same company. He made several trips to French and Mediterranean ports, but in 1920-1 his ship was taken out of service due to a slump in shipping needs. He returned to coastwise shipping, then retired and moved back to NS, spending his last years at Atwood's Brook.5
