Arthur M. Anderson

There is lots of action on the St. Mary’s River today. There were two ‘footers’ (1,000 ft. ships) down bound-the American Spirit and the Walter J. McCarthy Jr. Both ships are owned by the American Steamship Co. and haul between Two Harbors & Superior Wisconsin and Chicago.
Up bound, we had Lee A. Tregurtha, John G. Munson and Arthur M. Anderson. The Anderson is expected in Duluth on Wednesday, June 11 with a load of limestone. Anderson then picks up a load of iron ore pellets on June 12. So you can expect to see her back in the Locks later this week or early next week.
For you history buffs, the Arthur M. Anderson is the ship that was following the Edmund Fitzgerald when it went down in 1975.
