About Builders
 California Shipbuilding Corp., Los Angeles
California Shipbuilding Corporation, or CalShip, was one of the original nine emergency yards, built with 8 ways in 1940 by Todd and Kaiser, with $27mm from the USMC: Kaiser bought Todd out in 1942. The yard's 8 ways were increased to 14 in the second wave of shipbuilding expansion and, at its peak, CalShip employed 40,000 people. After the war, the yard was liquidated: its site was roughly where the dry bulk cargo terminal at Berths 212 and 213 of the Port of Los Angeles is now
