About Builders
 Columbia River Shipbuilding Corp., Portland (Oregon)
Columbia River Shipbuilding was an emergency yard, organized in 1918 to build cargo ships for the U.S. Shipping Board: it closed at the end of the war, after building 32 ships. Its owners were A. F. Smith and J. Frank Watson, owners of the Smith and Watson Iron Works, and it was managed by Charles D. Bowles, who was also associated with J. F. Duthie Shipbuilding, in Seattle. The shipyard was next door to Northwest Steel's shipyard, on the west bank of the Willamette River, on SW Moody Avenue at the foot of SW Woods Street, which is where the Ross Island Bridge is now.
