Globe Shipbuilding (WWII), Superior WI

Most recent update: August 28, 2019.


There were two Globe Shipbuilding Companies in Superior, one operational only during WWI, the other only during WWII.  They were at different locations, because the WWI Globe's facility was used by Walter Butler Shipbuilders in WWII.   If anyone can provide any further information about either, please e-mail me at timcolton@aol.com.
