Built 1916 at Baltimore Dry Dock Corporation, Maryland, and named Brammel Point by her first owners. Purchased by
General Petroleum Company in 1923 and acquired by Socony in 1926.
Los Alamos was a small ocean tanker which made only one voyage for Socony after her entrance into the fleet. She came
east through the Panama Canal. At New York she apparently did not meet inspection standards and could not be made to
do so without unreasonable expense. Therefore she was laid up, and finally sold in 1931.
