The Inland Steel Fleet 1911-1998 For nearly ninety years, lake freighters belonging to the Inland Steel fleet transported the raw materials required for the manufacture of steel at their owner’s industrial complex at Indiana Harbor, Indiana. This volume traces the history of this company’s involvement in the Great Lakes shipping industry throughout most of the twentieth century, achievements in which included the commissioning of groundbreaking vessels such as the steamers Wilfred Sykes and Edward L. Ryerson. In addition to chronicling the marine operations of the Inland Steel Company, this book also includes complete historical accounts for each of the ten vessels that served in the steel maker’s fleet over its long history.
