U.S. Life-Saving Service Annual Reports

Annual Reports of the Operations of the United States Life-Saving Service for the fiscal years ending June 30 …

Annual Reports for the USLSS were published each year from 1876 to 1914 and are not limited to Life Saving stations serving the North Carolina coast. Reports ceased on January 20, 1915 when the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service and U.S. Life-Saving Service were combined and renamed United States Coast Guard.

USLSS Annual Reports summarize the operations and activities of the service for that year. They include information regarding the establishment of stations, the design and procurement of equipment, statistics regarding maritime activity, accidents, shipwrecks and casualties, and descriptions of related life-saving operations.

This blog includes transcriptions of the following USLSS Annual Reports on vessels that wrecked off the North Carolina coast. Because of the difficulty in scanning said reports for NC wrecks, there are no doubt vessels that might have been missed. Following are links to the actual reports:
