Background
In March 1942, W.A. Bechtel Company agreed to set up a Marin Shipbuilding Division at Sausalito; the organization became known as Marinship Corporation in November of 1942. On June 27, 1942 the facility was complete enough for the first keel to be laid. Between then and August 14, 1945 Marinship Corporation delivered fifteen liberty ships to the Maritime Commission.
