"Old Whitey" is the nickname given to a deceased crewman of the SS Kamloops, which sank in Lake Superior in 1927. The decedent's body has remained underwater in the wreckage of the vessel since the foundering on December 7, 1927. The body is known to have been preserved by the cold temperatures of the water, in addition to adipocire. Four other unidentified bodies from the ship had washed ashore in 1928.
