This portion of the Shipscribe web site contains five tables containing data on all the contracts let for construction of standard-design merchant ship during World War I by the Emergency Fleet Corporation, the shipbuilding arm of the U. S. Shipping Board. For the most part, the tables contain the same data and the main difference is the way they are sorted. The Hulls and Contracts tables, however, have some additional data on contract adjustments, and the DsnList and Designs tables have lines for designs that were never built.
