"The Co-Operator," newspaper of the Barbour Flax Spinning Company, Paterson, New Jersey, published a listing of mill employees in service to our county during World War I from their Grand Street Mill, Hart Mill, Granite Machine Shop, and Spruce Street Mills. (Volume 1 Number 4 – July 6th, 1918).

"We salute these 72 patriots above, who have offered their services in helping to "make the world a decent place to live in." The Company is showing its appreciation to these boys by paying all those who have been in our employ for more than one year previous to their enlistment, the sum of $20.00 per month. Those at home are doing their bit by lending Uncle Same their money (through sales of) War Savings Stamps and Thrift Stamps."
