The Hugh L. Scotts were large, fast passenger liners built in 1921-1922 for the United States Shipping Board. Most were subsequently purchased by Dollar Line, then sold to American Presidents Line when Dollar Line ran into financial difficulties. Several were taken over by the Army for conversion to troop transports. They were relatively fast and spacious ships and performed well in their new role. Hugh L. Scott herself was originally the President Pierce and was returning from a reinforcement run to the Philippines when war broke out in the Pacific.

Both ships were transferred to the Navy in August 1942 after being withdrawn from the Pacific. They were both lost in the war against Germany.
