McAllister Brothers Is New Name For Baker-Whiteley Towing
The name of the Baker-Whiteley Towing Company, which has been synonymous with the Port of Baltimore since 1878, was changed recently to that of its owners, McAllister Brothers, Inc. Another change will be the painting of their fleet to correspond with the well-known colors and stack insignia of the McAllister fleets in the other ports of the world where they operate. Since acquiring the Baker- Whiteley organization, McAllister has added two tugs to the Baltimore fleet, one of which is the 3,000-hp Grace McAllister. These additions have increased the company's ability to handle the largest ships calling at the Port of Baltimore.
Capt. Thomas J. Murphy Jr., president of the Baker-Whiteley Towing Company, will continue to be in charge of the Baltimore office as a vice president of McAllister Brothers, Inc.
