A Wolverine By Any Other Name
If there is one constant with Great Lakes shipping, it's that things change. Cargoes change, the weather changes, even the Lakes themselves are changing. Some ships are no different. At one time this ship was known as the Wolverine. That was when she was owned by Oglebay Norton. After Oglebay Norton went bankrupt, she was no longer named the Wolverine.
After she was taken over by her current owners, she was renamed the Robert S. Pierson after the founder of the Soo River Company. The Soo River Company only lasted from 1975 to 1982.
