The steamship William G. Mather was launched in 1925
by Great Lakes Engineering Works, Ecorse, MI.
She was owned by Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Company.

She is now a floating museum in Cleveland, Ohio, adjacent to the submarine USS Cod.

The Mather is one of the most complete and original museum ships (boats) anywhere.
