Annual Reports of the United States Life-Saving Service

The United States Life-Saving Service (USLSS) was established in 1871. Annual Reports for the service were published each year from 1876 to 1914. On January 20, 1915 the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service and U.S. Life-Saving Service were combined and renamed United States Coast Guard.

The 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. The reports are hosted by Google and are searchable.
