"Black purchased the USS Sabalo for use as a pleasure yacht in 1921. On August 18, 1930, while en route from the New York Yacht Club to Baltimore, Black fell to his death off the back of the Sabalo off the coast of New Jersey."
Mount Black in Antarctica was named for him by Richard Evelyn Byrd because he financed a 1928 Antarctic expedition.

Byrd later sued Black's estate for the money for the completion of the trip after Black's death at sea.
