In the April issue, we presented the answers to our March quiz about various lake shipbuilders. Unfortunately, an error crept into the information which we gave on the whaleback steamer ALEXANDER MCDOUGALL, the last of the lake-built whalebacks and the only one to be completed with a regular bow.

ALEXANDER MCDOUGALL was actually Hull 141 of the American Steel Barge Company, even though she was the 40th lake-built whaleback. The yard's Hull 140 was actually the barge CONSTITUTION, built in 1897 for Pickands Mather and Company.
