Cason J. Callaway built by Great Lakes Engineering Works of River Rouge in Michigan. She was christened and launched as the Cason J. Callaway in 1952. The Callaway’s regular loading ports were Gary, Indiana, and Conneaut in Ohio. In 1955, the Cason J. Callaway was involved in a head-on collision with the B.F. Jones. Both ships were heavily damaged and the Jones was withdrawn from service after the incident.
From 1962 onwards, the Callaway was used to transport ore from Labrador mines to American steel mills on the lakes. Deck officers were assigned to Canadian ships to familiarize themselves with the eastern portion of the Seaway system. Seaway voyages continued until the early 1970s.
