Edwin was a jack of all trades. He was Superintendent of Mines under the Gastineau Channel between Juneau and Douglas, Alaska and had worked as a mining engineer in Oregon, as well. He was a carpenter in Ontario and Mojave, California. He worked as a plasterer, as well. He was a fox farmer on Hogan Island, Alaska and in Elko, Nevada.

Later, he ran a party boat and fishing boat in the San Francisco Bay area and in Fort Bragg, California. A physical description was made for Edwin's World War I Draft Registration Card. He was described as tall, slender, with blue eyes and brown hair. He had all his limbs and was not otherwise disabled.
