Santa Rosa

(ScStr.: t. 6,415; 1. 404'7"; b. 53'10"; dph. 26'2"; cpl. 41)

Santa Rosa, a steel-hulled, single screw steamer built in 1917 by William Cramp & Sons, Philadelphia, Pa., was taken over by the United States Army from the Grace Line on 29 August 1917 and operated by the Army Transport Service carrying troops and equipment across the Atlantic through the end of World War I.

Transferred to the Navy on 10 March 1919, she continued making transatlantic runs until she was returned to the Grace Line on 27 October 1919.
