History

Camp Lee was a major training center during World Wars I and II. It was named in honor of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. During World War II the Quartermaster Replacement Training Center, a Quartermaster Board for research and development, and a Technical Training Center for producing doctrinal literature and training aids were located here. Early in October 1941, the Quartermaster School moved from Philadelphia, making Camp Lee its new home. In 1905, Camp Lee was re-designated Fort Lee and made a permanent installation. The Quartermaster Training Center brought an intensification of training activity to the Quartermaster Corps. In 1962, Fort Lee became headquarters of the Quartermaster Corps. In July 1973, Fort Lee came under the command of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command. For more information, see the Fort Lee homepage.
