About Builders
 Federal Shipbuilding & Drydock Co., Kearny (New Jersey)
Federal Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Company was a subsidiary of U.S. Steel. Its Kearny shipyard was developed for the WWI war effort and managed to stay fully operational throughout the inter-war years. It expanded its capabilities for the WWII effort, with the aid of $10mm from the Navy, and developed a second shipyard, in Port Newark, with another $20mm from the Navy. Both yards closed permanently after WWII and were liquidated. The Kearny yard was on the Hackensack River, at Kearny Point, just south of the southerly of the two Routes 1 and 9 bridges:
