SHORT HISTORY OF USS GEORGETOWN AGTR-2
The USS GEORGETOWN AGTR-2 began her career as a Liberty Ship during World War II. Christened the S.S. ROBERT W. HART, she was launched on July 10, 1945, at the New England Shipbuilding and Dry-dock Corporation, South Portland, Maine. After seeing limited service, the Hart was retired to the Reserve Fleet by the Maritime Commission and remained there until being selected by the Navy for conversion to a Technical Research Ship, a cover term used for an electronic communication intercept platform. The GEORGETOWN was Commissioned on November 9, 1963, at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, Portsmouth, Virginia with the hull number AG-165. On April 1, 1964, the original hull number was changed to AGTR-2 and became the second of what were to be five Miscellaneous Auxiliary Technical Research vessels.

I need more history. The history I have is through December 1966. If there is anyone out there that served from January 1967 to December 1969 and have a good memory of dates and activities please put them together and I will add them to the extended history page.
In her short career the USS Georgetown had five commanding officers.
Commander G.H. Mullahy, USNR from October 26, 1964 to December 23, 1965;
Commander M.B. Betts, USN, from December 24, 1965 to May 22, 1967;
Commander G.P. Gebler, USN, May 23, 1967 to March 12, 1969;
