List of Merchant Vessels (T 37.11:, T 30.5:, C 11.5:, C 25.11:, T 17.11/2:)

The Bureau of Navigation was established in 1884 under the Department of the Treasury. In 1903, the bureau was transferred to the newly created Department of Commerce and Labor. It was combined with the Steamboat Inspection Service in 1932 to create the Bureau of Navigation and Steamboat Inspection, which was renamed in 1936 as the Bureau of Marine Inspection and Navigation. In 1942, various functions of this agency were transferred to the Bureau of Customs. The List of Merchant Vessels began publication in 1867 under the Statistics Bureau of the Department of the Treasury, although it did not appear as part of the Congressional Serial Set until 1895.
