SS Cassius Hudson Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The SS Cassius Hudson was a Liberty Ship built in the US to be used during World War II. The ship was laid down in July 1944 under a Maritime Commission contract at J.A. Jones Construction’s shipyards in Brunswick, Georgia and launched in August the same year. Soon after the launch, the ship was transferred to Alcoa Steamship Corporation and it hit a mine in October 1945 near Gibraltar. The ship survived and it was taken under tow only to strike another mine. This time, the ship sunk but it was recovered and sold as part of a batch of 40 ships to an Italian owner in Genoa.
