CalShip Online Exhibit
LIFE AT THE
California Shipbuilding Corporation Shipyard
California Shipbuilding Corporation (Calship) Collection is comprised of 158 copies of the bi-weekly magazine, CalShip Log, for the period September 1, 1941 to September 27, 1945.
Aimed at the employees of CalShip, its purpose was to inform workers of safety rules, policies and procedures and the progress of working for the war effort. The magazine includes a section on employee leisure activities. Also included in this small collection is a copy of the 1942 issue of CalShip Cavalcade, which pictorially details the transition of swampland into the Terminal Island shipyard.
Funding has been provided by California Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
