Cedar

 

A fragrant evergreen of the pine family.

 

Cedar, a sea-going lighthouse tender, was built at Long Beach, Calif., for service in Alaska. She was acquired from the Lighthouse Service in August 1917, and operated throughout World War I as a patrol vessel assigned to the 13th Naval District. She was returned to the Lighthouse Service under an Executive order of 1 July 1919.
