Winslow, (1848-1914) was the only surviving son of Rear Admiral John A. Winslow, who gained fame as the commander of the United States ship Kearsarge, which sunk the Confederate cruiser Alabama. J.H. Winslow was appointed to the Naval Academy in 1865, was graduated four years later, and made an ensign in 1870. He was a master in 1872, a Lieutenant in 1875, a Lieutenant Commander in 1897, Commander in 1900, a Captain in 1905, and a Rear Admiral in 1909. In 1875, when the United States ship Saranac was wrecked in British Columbia, he was the last man to leave the ship. He commanded the United States ship Fern at the battle of Santiago de Cuba on July 3, 1898, and landed the first detachment of American marines at Taku, China, during the Boxer Rebellion. His last sea command was the battleship Kearsarge II, as part of the Great White Fleet, which was named at the launching by his wife in honor of his father's most famous command. Admiral Winslow was in command of the Boston Navy Yard when he was retired in 1910 after a service of twenty-three years at sea.
