The steamship New Windsor, a 6207 gross ton freighter, was built at Newburgh, New York, as part of the large World War I shipbuilding program. While she was under construction, it was intended that she would be assigned to the Navy for use as a collier, and she was accordingly assigned the Identification Number 4050. However, when completed in March 1919 the wartime requirements had vanished and New Windsor remained in civilian hands.
This page features our only view of the freighter New Windsor.
