SHIPBUILDING IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST* 

Ships and the sea are always fascinating, but they take on a 
double interest when they are concerned with places we know. Con- 
sidering the possibilities that offer in the history of shipbuilding 
in the Pacific Northwest, it is surprising that there have not been 
more attempts to outline it in a complete form. The famous old 
Eliza Anderson and a few of the earliest vessels built on the coast 
are familiar to some of us because of their individual interest; 
but aside from Lewis and Dryden's Marine History of the Pacific 
Northwest, there are no organized presentation of the subject. 

There are excellent accounts of the ship yards, like that of 
the Hall Brothers, whose work extends back for many years, and 
of the Oregon Steam Navigation Company, and the beginnings of 
shipbuilding all along the coast and up the rivers. There are de- 
lightful reminiscences of the pioneers which give vivid little pic- 
tures of the conditions surrounding marine life forty or fifty years 
ago. But they are scattered through the volumes of different his- 
tories and old bound magazines, so that any impulse to look them 
up is apt to be checked by the thought, "O, but it takes so long to 
find them " 

It is for this reason that bibliographies on Northwest shipbuild- 
ing seem desirable. Anyone who is interested in reading upon the 
subject will find plenty of material in the well-known books that are 
in any good Northwest collection. The ensuing bibliography, though 
it is, of course, incomplete, ought to serve as a time-saver for 
the reader who is in search of a special topic. 

It includes articles on the great rise of the shipbuilding in- 
dustry with the coming of the war and the Government ship yards. 
It is interesting to discover that the sites of some of the new yards 
have their historical importance, in being old yards remodelled, or 
the locations of projected shipbuilding plants which never mater- 
ialized because the venture was too costly at the time. The present 
situation is really a premature culmination of a movement that 
began far back in the past, and affords rather an unusual study. 
It certainly cannot be appreciated without a knowledge of that 
past and an understanding of the opportunities offered by the 
Puget Sound country. Even the war could not have brought the 
ship yards here if there had not been a suitable coast upon which

to establish them, and, perhaps, the previous trial-and-error ex- 
periments in finding the best locations for them. 

Anyone who has had occasion to use Lewis and Dryden's Ma- 
rine History of the Pacific Northwest cannot help realizing what a 
truly monumental piece of work it is. It extends over a period of 
about forty years, from 1854 to 1895, giving a complete record of 
the steps in the growth of the shipbuilding industry, as well as 
giving an account of the few earlier vessels which are to be re- 
memberd for their historical value. In the preface it is announced 
their aim is to give the marine history, and that only ; for it has been 
omitted from the other histories of the Northwest. To do this, 
year by year, giving the names and descriptions of the vessels built 
and the names and activities of the most important men concerned 
in the various enterprises was obviously a tremendous undertaking. 

But the finished book does not present the purely statistical 
aspect which we would expect of one founded so largely upon stat- 
istics. It is accurate and well arranged, with the same general out- 
line for the treatment of each year; important vessels, steamers, 
sailing vessels, important men, and marine disasters. But it is 
written so as to avoid undue repetition and anything which might 
make it dry reading. Because it is so inclusive it has semed the 
most reliable source from which to draw up a chronological table 
of ships built on the coast. This table is intended to show the 
relative importance of different localities in marine history, and 
the rise and fall of the manufacture of steam and sailing vessels 
in each locality. Wherever possible the classification has been re- 
duced to simply "steam" and "sail," for uniformity's sake and to 
avoid confusion. Only coastbuilt vesels have been tabulated, though 
the history covers a great many of the river boats in the earlier 
times. For drawing general comparisons and discovering the gen- 
eral trend of development of the industry, the table ought to be 
useful. But for the real interest that centers around Port Lud- 
low and Port Blakely, Seattle, and Tacoma and Portland, and all 
the little harbors where marine activities grew and died and grew 
again, one must read some of the chapters from the history itself.
