The S.S. Dickinson Victory was a "Victory" ship built by the California Ship Building Corporation. The keel was laid on December 15, 1944, and the ship was launched on February 9, 1945. The "Victory" ship program was begun in 1944 as an improved extension of the "Liberty" ship program. Vessels in this new class were designed to be faster, safer, and convertible to civilian use following the war.
