Rushing the SS George Washington Carver to completion. Negro skilled workers played an important part in the construction of the SS George Washington Carver, second Liberty Ship named for a Negro, in the Richmond Shipyard No. 1 of the Kaiser Company. The first Negro to receive the Anchorman Award was I.H. Perry, a mechanic driller who worked for one year and one week without an unofficial day off or a single tardiness in reporting for work. Perry, forty-one years old, attended the pipe fitters school in Richmond after coming to California from his native Saint Louis, Missouri
