HISTORY -- Launched as the S.S. Virginia, the passenger ship carried passengers between Chicago and Milwaukee. In 1918, she was requisitioned by the Navy for use in the first world war and renamed the U.S.S. Blueridge. While waiting for orders in Boston harbor, the Navy finally decided she was no longer needed and she was sold as surplus to William Wrigley, owner of the famous chewing gum company and Catalina Island. The ship was renamed Avalon and was sent from New York via the Panama Canal, arriving April 5, 1920 and moored at the Catalina Terminal.
