Puget Sound Press Assoc. Honors Sidney Campbell Foss Launch Chairman

Sidney D. Campbell, chairman of the board of Foss Launch & Tug Co., a division of Dillingham Maritime, has been chosen 1978 Maritime Man of the Year by the Puget Sound Maritime Press Association.

The award was presented May 18 at the annual National Maritime Day Banquet, held at the Seattle (Wash.) Trade Center.

Mike Louisell, president of the Puget Sound Maritime Press Association, said that Mr. Campbell's selection as the 28th annual Man of the Year was based on his contributions to the commerce, development and general welfare of the area's maritime community.

Mr. Campbell began his career with Foss in 1936. He became board chairman in 1972, and was instrumental in the company's transition from a family-owned business to the leading division of the Dillingham Corporation's Maritime Group.

Mr. Campbell has been active in The Propeller Club, Northwest Towboat Association, Mayor of Seattle's Maritime Advisory Committee, Northwest Seaport Museum, and many other organizations.
