The SS Hudson, an iron-hulled steamer, foundered in Lake Superior off Eagle River, on this day in 1901. The ship, the crew, and all of its cargo were lost. It is believed that she experienced a machinery or steering gear failure that led to an accident after a furious gale swept through Lake Superior.
