Collection Historical Note

Arthur Lane

Arthur Lane graduated from Harvard in 1939 and began working for Peabody & Lane, a steamship agency founded by his father and Robert Peabody in 1920. Lane supervised the company's break bulk stevedoring operations until he joined the U.S. Navy during World War II. He  served in New Guinea where he was Company Commander of the 19th Seabee Stevedoring Battalion. Lane returned to Boston in 1946 and began his career as a shipping industry leader in the Port of Boston. He became President of Peabody & Lane in 1964 and served as President of the Boston Shipping Association from 1968 through 1990. During this time, Lane participated in negotiations with the east coast International Longshoremen's Association.  He was the founding member of The Boston Harbor Association, a long-time Associate Member of the Boston Marine Society, and a manager of the Boston Port and Seamen's Aid Society.  Mr. Lane died in Boston in 2008.
