Publication and Use Rights

Some material may be copyrighted or restricted. It is the researcher's obligation to determine and satisfy copyright or other case restrictions when publishing or otherwise distributing materials found in the collections.

Processing Note

Each photographic image has been assigned an Item number; when there are multiple physical forms of each image (e.g. a print and a copy negative) this has been noted in the physical description field.
In 1983, the National Maritime Museum hired a conservator to treat 187 photographs on the following album pages: flyleaf, 1-30, 93-94, 139-142, 149-152, 159-162, 181-182, and 187-188. The 187 treated photographs were removed, individually mounted, placed in polyester sleeves, and housed in archival envelopes. The original album pages from which the 187 photographs were removed are housed separately from the original album. The collection file contains the conservator's handwritten notes providing details about the condition of each photograph she treated as well as a list of specific treatments she used on each individual photograph. The collection file also includes 120 color slides photographed by the conservator showing the album pages before and after treatment.
"Scr 50" was erroneously handwritten by previous staff members on nearly all the mounts of the treated photographs. In 2013, the mounts were changed to the correct number, scr 51. In addition, SFMNHP Classified photograph collection Item numbers were assigned to approximately 75% of the prints and written on the mounts; however, these numbers should be ignored due to the fact that they have not been cataloged in the Classified collection database.
One of the prints removed by the conservator, Item 036 (formerly scr51: 7b), could not be located at the time of processing in February 2013. The print has been noted as missing at the Item level (Series 1.1, File Unit 12, Item 036). The conservator's slides located in the collection file show the print prior to its removal from the album page. It is a cyanotype, smaller than 8 x 10 in., showing the boilers for OLYMPIA (built 1892; cruiser: U.S. Navy) being lifted aboard the vessel in 1893.
Several photographs in the album have "Photo # NH" and a number written next to them. For example, "Photo # NH 75254." This likely refers to the U.S. Naval Historical Center Photograph number.
SAFR staff made copy negatives of seventeen of the album's photographic prints between 1994-2001. These copies have been identified at the Item level. In addition, 14 copy negatives were made from the album's prints and cataloged as part of SFMNHP's Classified photograph collection, roughly ranging from 41357-41393 and 41426-41513. These prints have been cataloged at the Item level and the corresponding Classified number for the copy negative has been noted in the related collections field. The Classified copy negatives have not been included in the total item count for P79-072a.
The album's original use was intended as a ledger regarding shipments of parts to UIW. This use was abandoned and the ledger was turned into a photograph album. Pages 1-4 and 6-10 have handwriting on them which was revealed when the conservator removed the photographs.
Notes on condition: The album binding is in poor condition. Many of the sewn signatures have broken, and some folios have torn along the center fold, creating separated leaves. Some pages have multiple overlapping photographs attached in such a way that one edge of a photo must be lifted to view a photo underneath. In some cases, the photos have been damaged from folding. Care should be taken when lifting a photograph to view those below. Also take care to ensure that the photographs are lying flat before another album page is turned on top of it. Also note that the leather portions of the album covers have red rot.
The collection file also contains photocopies of four cards with information about oil burner parts and their selling price, circa 1920-1925. The originals were evidently given to the J. Porter Shaw Library, but they could not be located in February 2013.
In March 2013, it was discovered that an item in the field collection SAFR-00454 actually belonged in this collection. This item ("(1) 8" x 10" cyanotype - Union Iron Works May 1897") has been returned to P79-072a (SAFR 23362) and assigned Item number 764. See the collection file for more information.

Acquisition Information

SAFR-00001
GOGA-00789
John T. Scott donated the photograph album to the San Francisco Maritime Museum on April 2, 1952, and it was assigned the collection number scr 51 (see SFMM Accession Ledger 101/3). On June 26, 1952, John T. Scott donated more materials to the SFMM, and it appears that some of the loose photographic prints from this donation were added to this collection (see collection file for more information). The album and loose prints were formally accessioned by the National Maritime Museum, part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, on April 27, 1979 and given the collection number P79-072a.
SAFR-00001 is a blanket accession that was transferred from the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) to the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park in September 1988. GGNRA had previously acquired the collection from the San Francisco Maritime Museum when it became a unit of the National Park Service in 1977.
GOGA-00789 was transferred from the J. Porter Shaw Library to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) in February 1985.

Historical or Biographical Note

John T. Scott (1865-1960) was a marine engineer. He was superintendent of Union Iron Works from 1895-1905 and co-owner of Moore & Scott Iron Works from 1905-1916. He also founded the Pacific Coast Shipbuilding Company in 1917 with his uncle Henry T. Scott (1846-1927).
John Thomas Scott was born in 1864 or 1865 in Maryland to Mary Hopkins Scott and George S. Scott. He had older brothers named Wakeman H. Scott (born 1861) and Irving Murray Scott Jr. (1862-1952), and younger siblings named Margaret H. Scott (born 1867), George Worthington Scott (1869 July-1941 January 31), and Henry T. Scott (1877 January 13-1949 July 15).
John T. Scott's uncles were Irving Murray Scott (1937-1903) and Henry Tiffany Scott (1846-1927), the owners of the Union Iron Works in San Francisco's Potrero district during the 1860s-1890s. John was a marine engineer by profession, and followed his uncles into the family business, becoming a superintendent of the Union Iron Works in 1895. John T. Scott's brother Irving M. Scott, Jr. was also in the family business, and worked as a draftsman and engineer at Union Iron Works, Moore & Scott Iron Works, and Pacific Coast Shipbuilding Company.
John T. Scott managed operations at Union Iron Works until he left in 1905 to begin his own business, in partnership with Robert S. Moore and Joseph A. Moore. The Moore & Scott Iron Works started operation in 1905 in Hunter's Point neighborhood of San Francisco. In 1909, they moved to the site of W.A. Boole's old yard on the shore of Oakland Creek (Knave). Moore & Scott was a very successful operation, which continued to thrive under the name of Moore Shipbuilding Company after Scott sold his interests in 1917.
Scott's next venture was the short-lived Pacific Coast Shipbuilding Company, which he established in 1917 in partnership with his uncle Henry T. Scott (1846-1927) at Bay Point, California, (present day Port Chicago) to take advantage of the World War I shipbuilding boom.
Scott lived in San Francisco until 1909, subsequently in Burlingame, and finally by the side of Lake Merritt in Oakland. He passed away in March of 1960 at the age of 96.

Biography/Organization History

Union Iron Works History: In 1849, brothers Peter and James Donahue, a machinist and a boilermaker respectively, started a blacksmith and machine shop in an adobe hut on the northwest corner of Jackson and Montgomery Streets. Their original equipment consisted of only a pair of hand operated bellows and a charcoal forge (A century of progress, 3).
In the spring of 1850, they moved to the northeast corner of First and Mission Streets in the neighborhood then known as Happy Valley, and called their business the Union Iron & Brass Foundry. They were soon joined by their brother Michael Donahue, who was a molder. "The first iron casting produced in California was made at the Union Iron & Brass Foundry in 1850; it was a spring bearing for the shaft of the steamer JOHN S. MCKIM, the first propeller-driven commercial vessel built in the United States (History of Bethlehem's San Francisco Yard, 27).
In 1853, James and Michael sold their interest in the company to Peter. Michael returned to the Midwest where he served three terms as the Mayor of Davenport, Iowa. Peter changed the name of the business to "Union Iron Works, Peter Donahue, Proprietor" and later shortened it to "Union Iron Works" (History of Bethlehem's San Francisco Yard, 27-28).
In 1863, Peter sold a two-thirds interest in Union Iron Works to Henry J. Booth and Charles S. Higgins, and the company was then known as Donahue-Booth and Company. "It was at this time that Irving M. Scott, who had come to the Union Iron Works in 1860 as a draftsman and had risen to the position of responsibility and authority in the firm, was induced to return as superintendent" (History of Bethlehem's San Francisco Yard, 28).
In 1865, Peter Donahue and Charles Higgins sold their interest in the firm and Henry J. Booth, George W. Prescott and Irving M. Scott went into partnership, with Scott becoming the general manager of the works. The new firm was called H.J. Booth and Company (History of Bethlehem's San Francisco Yard, 28).
In June 1875, Henry J. Booth retired and the firm name was changed to Prescott, Scott and Company (History of the San Francisco Yard, 8). In 1880, Irving M. Scott took a trans-Pacific voyage and visited many shipyards around the world, taking note of what other businesses were doing. When he returned to San Francisco, he reorganized the company to make shipbuilding its principal business. The company was incorporated and reverted to its earlier name of Union Iron Works. They purchased 32 acres of land in the Potrero District, and constructed new buildings in 1883. The president of the new corporation was George W. Prescott. Henry T. Scott (Irving's brother) was vice president and treasurer, and Irving M. Scott was general manager. George W. Dickie and his brother James Dickie were brought in to take charge of shipbuilding as superintendent and manager, respectively. The first ship off the ways at the new Union Iron Works was ARAGO, a 200-foot collier, completed in 1885 (History of Bethlehem's San Francisco Yard, 29).
Between the years 1885 and 1902, the Union Iron Works built 75 vessels, including OLYMPIA (built 1892; cruiser: U.S. Navy), OREGON (built 1893; battleship: U.S. Navy), CHARLESTON (built 1888; cruiser: U.S. Navy) and SAN FRANCISCO (built 1889; cruiser: U.S. Navy).
On August 25, 1902, the United Iron Works was sold, together with five other companies, to the United States Shipbuilding Company. The United States Shipbuilding Company went bankrupt and sold Union Iron Works to the Reorganization Committee of the United States in the fall of 1904. On January 19, 1905, the Bethlehem Steel Corporation of New Jersey purchased Union Iron Works (A century of progress, 14; Frear, 238).
On November 11, 1908, the Union Iron Works Dry Dock Company was incorporated and the entire property of the San Francisco Dry Dock Company was purchased at the foot of Second Street and Hunters Point (Fear, 240). In October 1917, the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation, Ltd. was established in Delaware and leased the Potrero Yard in November of the same year (History of the San Francisco Yard, Argonaut, 11). The company's four Bay Area yards were known as the Potrero Works (for the former Union Iron Works), the Risdon Works, the Hunters Point Works, and the Alameda Works (Minor).
During WWI, the yard built destroyers and submarines. On December 24, 1924, the Union Iron Works Company was purchased by Bethlehem (History of the San Francisco Yard, Argonaut, 11).
On November 15, 1938, the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation, Ltd. was changed to the Bethlehem Steel Company, Shipbuilding Division, and the Potrero Yard was renamed the San Francisco Yard (Fear, 240). On December 29, 1939, the Hunter's Point property was sold to the Navy Department (Fear, 240).
During WWII, the yard built destroyers, destroyer escorts and cruisers and converted or repaired more than 2500 naval and commercial vessels (San Francisco Yard).
In the early 1970s, Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation sold their Alameda Yard. On November 1, 1982, the City of San Francisco became owner of the Potrero location property, and Todd Shipyards, a repair and conversion corporation then headquartered in New York City, assumed title to the assets, the fixtures, and the hardware, of Bethlehem, San Francisco. In 1997, Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation ceased all shipbuilding activities. Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation was officially dissolved on January 1, 2004.
