Charles Hollinsworth Jennings was the keeper at Lovells Island Range Lights in Boston Harbor from 1919 to 1939. Shortly after he married Edith Josephine Rogers, he joined the U.S. Life-Saving Service, and served at the Cahoon’s Hollow Station in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. His pay was $450 per year. After five years with the Life-Saving Service, he applied for a job with the U.S. Lighthouse Service and on February 24, 1907, he was appointed as a 4th assistant keeper at the Cape Ann/Thacher Island Lighthouse. His pay was now $660 per year. He later went on to serve at other lighthouses before being appointed keeper at the Lovells Island Range Lights. Born on August 5, 1878, in Provincetown, Massachusetts, Charles H. Jennings died on March 1, 1940. (Lighthouse Digest archives photo, courtesy Doug Bingham)
