The AP-2 and AP-3 Cargo and Victory ship plans collection (SAFR 21365, HDC1306) consists of 27 notebook pages of plans, engineering
specifications and outfitting drawings for AP2 and AP3 cargo ships, or Victory ships from 1944. A note in the collection indicates
that the notebook belonged to John Alexander Duncan, Assistant Superintendent of Outfitting, and that these ships were built
at Kaiser Shipyard #2 in Richmond, California. The pages are offset printing and handwritten and include profiles of the ships,
drawings of decks, engine rooms and machinery arrangement, tables and general specifications. The collection is open for use.
According to the note in the collection file, John Alexander Duncan was a marine engineer from Scotland, who was the Assistant
Superintendent of Outfitting at Kaiser Shipyard #2 in Richmond, California. He may have worked specifically at the Permanente
Metals Corporation. The note mentions "dock 42 43, 44-45," which may refer to the years Duncan was there. He was also a machinist
with Chevrolet/Fisher Body in Oakland, California.
