USRC/USCGC McCulloch (1897-1917)

USRC McCulloch, a 1280-ton cruising cutter, was built at Philadephia, Pennsylvania. She commissioned in December 1897 and soon thereafter steamed eastwards, bound for the Pacific. When she arrived in Asiatic waters, the threat of war with Spain caused McCulloch to be diverted to Navy service. In May-August 1898, she participated in the Manila campaign. Upon her return to the Treasury Department, the cutter operated in the North American west coast from Alaska to Mexico. Again transferred to Navy control during World War I, McCulloch was sunk in a collision off California on 13 June 1917.
