Anthony J. McAllister of Mc- Allister Brothers, Inc., the marine towing and transport company, has been awarded the Stevens Honor Award by Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, N.J. The award, which honors his extraordinary business career that spans six decades, was presented at the college's Alumni Banquet on October 20.
Mr. McAllister received the Mechanical Engineering degree from Stevens in 1921. He began his marine training at 15 as quartermaster aboard the Hudson River excursion vessel Bear Mountain.
After graduation from Stevens, Mr. McAllister joined the family firm. It was founded in 1864 by his grandfather, James McAllister of County Antrim, Ireland, with a single sail lighter that plied the waters of New York Harbor. The McAllister fleet today includes 50 tugs, 35 oil and dry cargo barges, and 14 crew and supply boats that operate along the Atlantic coastline from New York to Virginia, in the Gulf of Mexico, the Carib- operbean, the St. Lawrence and Great Lakes Seaways and most recently, the Antilles and the Arabian Gulf.
Mr. McAllister retired as chairman of the board of McAllister Brothers in 1974.
Mr. McAllister is a licensed engineer in the State of New York, and a member of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers.
He is also one of the original founders of the Robert L.
Hague American Legion Post, the first and still largest merchant marine post of the American Legion.
In 1977, he was instrumental in forming the Maritime Group, whose purpose is to encourage closer technical and educational exchange between the marine industry and Stevens Institute.
Mr. McAllister was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and has been a lifetime resident of the borough.
Three of his five sons are highranking officers of McAllister Brothers, Inc. Mr. McAllister also has three daughters, none of whom are involved in the family business.
