1917 · The U.S. Army Spruce Production Division

Thousands of soldiers were assigned to the U.S. Army Spruce Production Division to provide wood for airplanes and ships during World War I. Poor working conditions in 1917 caused the men to strike which slowed the logging production in the area. The demands of the strikers were rejected by the lumber companies. As the need was ever-present for lumber during the war, the government stationed soldiers to do the work. Over 230 spruce soldier camps were built and occupied throughout the Pacific Northwest at this time.

Name Meaning

English (mainly southern): from the Old French habitational name and personal name Paris . Parrish is the most common form of the name in English, and is the result of confusion between -s and -sh (compare Norris ), reinforced by folk etymological association with the modern English word parish.
