Biography/Organization History

Liberty ships are an emergency class of cargo steamer, based on British design, that were built starting in 1941 to provide supply lines for Allied military during World War II. The liberty ship project was an emergency action, and was classed with other projects to build the materials of war, but this project was designed to be expendable if necessary. Emergency shipyards were established for the production of these vessels; they were built with interchangeable parts and improvements were constantly being made throughout World War II. Post-war, many of the vessels were easily converted to commercial cargo vessels and sold to foreign and domestic interests, or the vessels were added to the National Defense Reserve Fleet in order to supplement the vessels already engaged in the Korean War. By the mid-1960s, most Liberty ships were scrapped as they had met their life span of 20 years; the materials used and the technology used to construct these vessels was not anticipated to be cost effective to maintain after 20 years.

In 1943, the United States Maritime Commission was planning a faster cargo ship to be built in the emergency shipyards of World War II. A new design was created, based on the Liberty ship, but with improvements to the hull. The design proved to make the Victory ships faster and stronger than their predecessors. These ships served as cargo ships and transports, and some of the vessels were converted to troop transports after they launched. Only three Victory ships were lost during World War II. Post-war, many Victory ships were sold to American interests -- many of these operating out of the San Francisco Bay Area -- and also some international buyers. Other Victory ships were allocated to the United States Merchant Reserve Fleet, which was part of the National Defense Reserve Fleet. One location of this "Mothball Fleet," was at Suisun Bay, California, which is inland but connected to the San Francisco Bay. By 1971, most Victory ships were scrapped.
