Thanks for finding the original doc that was the source of a couple of sources I've been using, I always wondered about it. Callahan was the first to ever put such a helpful list together, and no one else has continued his work for the 20th century navy. The navy never did/does that on its own, for reasons I do not understand. And it is nice to see the ships sorted that way.
There are some other additional sources for help in our Library Reference Desk
. In particular, you might find help in Helpful Links to Outside Information
, including navy ships at DANFS and Coast Guard (Revenue Cutter Service) ships and NOAA ships, such as the Fish Commission's Albatross.
