McAllister Brothers Names Donald Hankin VP-Engineering

Donald C. Hankin, marine superintendent for McAllister Brothers in the ports of New York, Philadelphia, Norfolk, San Juan and overseas operations, has been appointed to the additional position of vice president-engineering.

He will continue in his present position, as well as supervise the design and construction of new equipment and a staff consisting of the design engineer and port engineers and captains in these ports.

Mr. Hankin joined the 113- year-old marine towing and transportation company in 1968 as superintendent of new construction and since that time has steadily advanced to other positions, including general manager of Mc- Allister's ship repair yard in Jersey City. In his new office, he will no longer manage the repair yard in order to devote more time to new construction and maintenance of the expanding McAllister fleet.

Mr. Hankin began his career in 1941 at the New York Shipbuilding Corp. in Camden, N.J.

After serving in the U.S. Navy, he joined the Cramp Shipbuilding Company as sheet metal quarterman. Thereafter, he joined R.T.C. Shipbuilding Corporation in its design and engineering department, where he subsequently became chief engineer.

Mr. Hankin is holder of two U.S. patents, the first for a single lever engine control system, and the second more recently for the elevating pilothouses now being used on McAllister tugs.
