The SS FELIX TAUSSIG

captain Mauritz Anderson (my great uncle)

McCormick SS Co., or McCormick Shipping Corporation

I haven't been able to find out much about McCormick. I'm not even sure which McCormick it was. McCormick Steamship I understand was a 3 star line during WWII and a division of Pope & Talbot, Inc. and based out of San Francisco, which makes sense, since that is where Mauritz lived. However, the house flag had the M within a star. I also found that there are a number of legal actions involving a McCormick Shipping Corporation. I don't know what their house flag was. There doesn't seem to be a star around the M on this funnel, so I don't know which company it was.

Any information you can provide would be helpful.

According to: http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/sh-usn/usnsh-f/id2282.htm

USS Felix Taussig (ID # 2282), 1918-1919. Originally, and later, S.S. Felix Taussig (American Freighter, 1917). Later renamed Ata USS Felix Taussig, a 6253 gross ton (12,800 tons displacement) cargo ship, was built in 1917 at Newport News, Virginia, as the civilian freighter of the same name. In late August 1918 she was taken over by the Navy and placed in commission. The ship made three trans-Atlantic voyages to France during the next seven months, carrying cargo and provisions to support U.S. World War I and post-war activities. USS Felix Taussig was decommissioned in April 1919 and returned to her owners at that time. She then returned to commercial service and continued to operate as S.S. Felix Taussig until after World War II. In 1948 the ship became the Italian flag freighter Ata and was scrapped in 1953
