February AKCHO membership meeting – The City Is More Than Human

Tuesday, February 27, 2018, 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Hosted by National Archives and Records Administration
6125 Sand Point Way NE
Seattle, WA 98115
Phone: (206) 336-5115

Program:
The City is More Than Human: An Animal History of Seattle

It’s easy to get wrapped up in human histories, but author Frederick L. Brown has reminded us that animals are a big part of an area’s history as well. Please join us for our next member meeting when Fred discusses his recent book “The City is More Than Human” and illustrates that point with images of how animals, especially livestock and pets, have shaped Seattle’s history.

In 2017, that unique look at Seattle history won Fred AKCHO’s Virginia Marie Folkins Award, as well as the Western History Association’s Hal K. Rothman Award for best Western environmental history. Years of research went into the book, which is based on Fred’s 2010 University of Washington PhD dissertation. Members will get a chance to ask Fred about his research methods and his thoughts on what types of histories make for a good book.

AKCHO meetings being planned for 2018

AKCHO’s Annual Membership meeting will be held January 30 at the Museum of Flight. The morning meeting will include election of AKCHO’s newest board members, updates from the King County Historic Preservation Program and 4Culture, and a panel on “Curtis150/Beyond the Frame” – the joint effort being undertaken by many King County historical organizations in 2018 to reflect on the life and work of photographer Edward S. Curtis on the sesquicentennial of his birth. 

More details will be coming soon on this meeting, as well as on the AKCHO Awards program in April and regular membership meetings throughout the year, which are currently being booked by AKCHO Programs Chair Miguel Llanos. If your organization has an idea for a program and would like to host an AKCHO meeting in 2018, please contact Miguel at miguel@journalist.com.

November AKCHO membership meeting – Jack Straw Cultural Center

Host: Jack Straw Cultural Center
Address: 4261 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle
Phone: 206-634-0919

Program: The Sounds of History

It’s not just words and pictures that help preserve history. Sounds can add incredible depth to that storytelling, and the nonprofit Jack Straw Cultural Center has been doing just that in the Seattle area since 1962. The 2014 winner of AKCHO’s technology award will host our November membership meeting, with Executive Director Joan Rabinowitz sharing its use of radio, podcasts and audio guides to record the histories of local artists, community groups and heritage societies. Recording the 50th anniversary of the 1962 World’s Fair, digitizing a 1970 KRAB radio series on Seattle’s history, and producing an oral history of Lake Union and Portage Bay are a few of the group’s contributions over five decades.

An exhibit titled “Extraordinary Ordinary People: American Masters of Traditional Arts” will be on display as well for members to visit.

Driving Directions:

Located in Seattle’s University District, the center is at the southwest corner of NE 43rd and Roosevelt Way. No free parking but plenty of pay lots and some street parking.
