Globe Shipbuilding, Superior WI

Most recent update: June 28, 2010.


There were apparently two Globe Shipbuilding Companies in Superior.  This one was operational only during WWII, while the other was operational only during WWI at a different location.  They may have had some common ownership and the WWII Globe was at a different location because Walter Butler Shipbuilders had taken over the WWI Globe's facility.  If anyone can provide any further information about either, please e-mail me at timcolton@aol.com.
