During WWI, county war history committees were formed to document the stories of local soldiers. In order to aid the Spokane County War History Committee's work, various lists of men were compiled; some of those lists have survived. While not all of these lists are titled they still provide a glimpse of the men from Spokane County, who served during the war and the efforts put forth by the Committee to preserve their stories. The lists are included with other Committee materials that are held by the Spokane Public Library.
In an effort to continue the work of the War History Committee, the Spokane Public Library and the Office of the Secretary of State are publishing online an index to these materials.

|Agency History:||The Spokane Public Library began in 1891 as the Union Library Association, a joint effort between the Women's Sorosis Club and the Carpenters Union. The library faced financial trouble so the City of Spokane brought the library under its control and renamed it the Spokane City Library. They had space in City Hall, but soon needed their own building. The library's first building was a Carnegie Library at 10 South Cedar Street which was completed in 1905. The Spokane Public Library now has six branches across the city.|
