About Builders
 Detroit Shipbuilding Co., Detroit
Detroit Shipbuilding began as Campbell, Wolverton & Co., later becoming Campbell & Owen. It was acquired by Stephen Kirby in 1871 and incorporated as Detroit Dry Dock in 1874. Nearby Wyandotte Shipbuilding was started by Frank Kirby in 1872 and combined with Detroit Dry Dock in 1878. Henry Ford worked as an apprentice machinist at Detroit Dry Dock from 1879 to 1882. The Kirbys sold the company to The American Ship Building Company in 1899, and it was renamed Detroit Shipbuilding, becoming AmShip Detroit in 1913, when AmShip eliminated individual yard identities. The yard built two lakers after WWI ended and then became a repair facility, finally closing in 1929
