TitleEffie M. Morrissey ship
Scope and Content of FondsThis collection contains only a small portion of the records of the italic Effie M. Morrissey /italic , a ship still in - active service over 100 years after it was built. The records consist mainly of engineers' logs for the period - 1942-1943 when the vessel was in the service of the United States government.
