For that success he was promoted to the rank of commander by an Act of Congress and awarded the Distinguished Service Medal by the Navy Department, since which time he has been popularly known as "Commander Ellsberg", regardless of his rank. Ellsberg described the raising of the S-51 in his 1929 book, On the Bottom." .

ELLSBERG, COMMANDER EDWARD

New American Library, New York: 2004. Softcover. Good condition. In a collision with the steamship City of Rome on the night of September 25, 1925, the U.S. submarine S-51 sank in 132 feet of water near Block Island-taking thirty-three sailors to the ocean floor. The disaster stirred such a strong public reaction that Navy brass made the decision to attempt the impossible-to raise the thousand-ton sub from the bottom of the sea. Includes an Index.
