A city on San Pablo Bay in western California which is in turn named for
General Mariano G. Vallejo. Fleet ballistic submarine SSBN-658 also bears
the name of this distinguished Californian. See Mariano G.
Vallejo for his biography.
Vallejo was projected as a Fargo-class light cruiser to be
built at Camden, N.J. by the New York Shipbuilding Corp. under a 9 July
1942 authorization; but her construction was cancelled 5 October 1944.
