The USS Wolverine is one of the oddest aircraft carriers in US Navy history.

Built in 1912, the Wolverine was originally a side-wheel steamer called the SS Seeandbee that was used for luxury cruises on the Great Lakes. But it got a second career when it was bought by the US Navy in 1942 as the service rapidly stood up a carrier force to answer Japanese aggression. https://www.businessinsider.com/9-photos-of-uss-wolverine-a-weird-wwii-carrier-originally-cruise-ship-2018-7
