Historical Society sets talk on Spruce Division

The Clallam County Historical Society/North Olympic History Center is sponsoring a presentation by Steve Hauff about the Spruce Production Division, set for 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1, in the social hall at First United Methodist Church, 107 E. Seventh St., Port Angeles.

Hauff’s presentation is free and open to the public.

Clallam County played a significant role during World War I, and Hauff’s talk presents the cast of characters and events surrounding the Spruce Division and its impact on logging, railroad construction and life at the camps and in Port Angeles.

Copies of Hauff’s book, “The Spruce Production Division in Clallam County,” will be available for $15. The book chronicles the operations of the Spruce Division in Clallam County. Included are sections covering the construction of a 37-mile “impossible” railroad in just six months; mill construction, and private operations which utilized Spruce Division personnel. The volume includes more than 100 photos, comprehensive maps and first-hand narratives to describe the project.

A retired Clallam County engineer, Hauff is the author and co-author of numerous books and articles about railroads.

For more information, call the center’s office at 360-452-2662 or email to artifact@olypen.com.
