On 15 October 1959, Barbel-class submarine USS Blueback SS-581 was commissioned with LCDR Robert H. Gautier in command.
She was the last non-nuclear submarine to join the United States Navy and was the final conventionally powered combat capable submarine to be decommissioned, leaving the United States Navy with a fully nuclear submarine fleet except for the research submarine USS Dolphin.
