According to the publication Public Hygiene by Thomas Stewart Blair published in 1911, the national government maintained the following list of quarantine and inspection stations in the USA. However, it does not appeart to include all ports of entry as it did not include Baltimore, MD; Boston, MA; nor Providence, RI, which were maintained by their respectives states as was New York city. Nor is Galveston, TX, shown below, and I would think that I may be overlooking other ports of entry to the USA.
