SS Donald W. Bain Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The SS Donald W. Bain was a Liberty-class ship named after a state Treasurer of North Carolina in the service of the Maritime Commission during World War II, but it was operated by the Norton Lilly Management Corp. After the war, the ship was sold to a private owner but it was wrecked in December 1951. It was rebuilt and sold again to an Italian shipping company where it suffered a conversion and stayed in service until 1969 when it was scrapped.
