SS Boston was launched by Yarmouth Steamship Company from Glasgow to Yarmouth (USA) in 1890.
In 1900 the Dominion Atlantic Railway purchased Yarmouth Steamship Company
In 1902 the International Mercantile Marine Company purchased the shares of several shipping companies, which included the Dominion Line and White Star Line
From 1908 IMMC operated a service under the name "White Star-Dominion Line” using the Dominion steamships (one of which was SS Boston)
In 1911 SS Boston was sold to Canadian Pacific and in 1912 sold to Eastern Steamship Line of Boston.
In 1917 The Eastern Steamship Line sold the Boston to the US government.
In 1924 The Americans reconditioned her to go to war
