    Historical or Biographical Note

    CELILO (built 1915; steam schooner) was operated by the McCormack Steamship Company. In the early 1920s, she and her sister ship, the WAPAMA were sold when the McCormack fleet all went steel. CELILO ended up as wreckage lying on a deserted island in Suisun Bay, and was burned by vandals on the eve of an expedition to salvage materials.
