A very worthy NegroTom Lee with his boat "Zev" saved thirty-two lives when the steamer U.S. Norman sank about twenty miles below Memphis May 8, 1925. But he has a finer monument than this—an invisible one. A monument of kindliness, generosity, courage and bigness of heart. His good deeds were scattered everywhere that day and into eternity.
