My fellow researchers
The SS Marine Tiger was built in 1945 by the Kaiser Co. Inc. in Vancouver,
Washington. Originally planed as a passenger ship but, because of the war,
she was converted to a troop transport
Some time in early 1946 she was converted back to a passenger ship. From then
on the SS Marine Tiger would play a major rule in the Puerto Rican migration
to Nueva York
On June 24, 1946 she sailed from San Juan, Puerto Rico with 929 passengers
and arrived in Nueva Yorl on June 28, 1946 with 931. The names of 2 stowaways
were added to the passenger manifest. They were removed to Ellis Island. For
the record, Dalia and I have agreed that they will remain nameless.
As of this writing, I have reason to believe that this was its maiden Voyage
on the San Juan to New York run.
Now, Dalia Morales and I, would like to invite you to meet the Pasajeros a
Nueva York as they disembark from the SS Marine Tiger
