Admiral Cameron McRae Winslow (29 July 1854 - 2 January 1932) served in the United States Navy during the Spanish-American War and World War I. A son of Commander Francis Winslow (I) (1818-1862), he was a first cousin once removed of Rear Admiral John A. Winslow, who served in the Civil War (Cameron's father, who also fought in the Civil War, and died of Yellow Fever in 1862 while in command of the USS R. R. Cuyler (1860), was a first cousin of John A. Winslow.) Cameron McRae Winslow was born in Washington, D.C.. His older brother was Lt. Francis Winslow (II) USN; his younger brother, Arthur Winslow, was the grandfather of the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Robert Lowell. He graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1874, after which followed years of extensive sea duty. During the 1898 war with Spain, then-Lieutenant Winslow served on board Nashville.
