    The Rhode Island School of Design has a wonderful online collection of various paper plans for dazzle camouflage schemes donated by Maurice L. Freedman, who was district camoufleur for the 4th district of the U.S. Shipping Board, Emergency Fleet Corporation, and would go on to invent the board game “Battleship.” [via Dude Craft]. To meet the need, the U.S. Shipping Board incorporated the Emergency Fleet Corporation to handle the construction of a merchant fleet for the government and the corporation contracted with private shipyards nationwide, including in Seattle and Tacoma, to build ships. During World War I, Gilbert served as a camouflage artist for the U.S. Shipping Board (the Emergency Fleet Corporation), as did other well-known artists and illustrators, including McClelland Barclay, William MacKay, and Henry Reuterdahl (Behrens ).
