Captain Edward H. Martin

Captain Edward H. Martin was the superintendent of the dockyard at Halifax at the time of the explosion.

After 36 years in Britain's Royal Navy, Martin retired in 1909, joined Canada's newly created navy the following year, and assumed responsibility for the dockyard's operations and for the port's naval defence. Although he was on a mission in England at the time of the Halifax explosion, a subsequent enquiry raised the question of Martin's role in the disaster, including his apparent reluctance to address problems with the control of shipping in the harbour.
