Abstract:The original concrete ship program of the Emergency Fleet Corporation called for the construction of thirty-eight 7500-ton vessels, three 3500-ton vessels and one 3000-ton vessel, making a total of forty-two vessels. Immediately after the armistice, this program was reduced to eight 7500-ton tankers, two 7500-ton cargo vessels, three 3500-ton cargo vessels and 3000-ton cargo vessel, or a total of fourteen vessels. In October, 1919, the two 7500-ton cargo vessels were canceled, leaving twelve vessels to be completed.
