SS John W. Brown is a Liberty ship,

- one of two still operational and one of three preserved as museum ships.[5] As a Liberty ship, she operated as a merchant ship of the United States Merchant Marine during World War II and later was a vocational high school training ship in New York City for many years. Now preserved, she is a museum ship and cruise ship berthed at Clinton Street Pier 1 in Baltimore Harbor in Maryland.
John W. Brown was named after the Canadian-born American labor union leader John W. Brown (1867-1941).[6]
The other surviving operational Liberty ship is SS Jeremiah O'Brien in San Francisco, California. A third Liberty ship, SS Hellas Victory (ex-SS Arthur M. Huddell) is preserved as a static museum ship in Piraeus, Greece.
