King County Collects
King County covers a varied slice of land and people, and King County Collects tells their stories through historic photos combined with color photos of artifacts from the collections of over sixty heritage organizations. Short essays by twelve heritage experts introduce chapters on such topics as The Natural World, Peoples, the Built Environment, Making a Living, Transportation, Community, Education, Worship, Industry, Having Fun, and the Arts. This book will appeal not only to regional history buffs, but also to the general reader and to tourists looking for authentic Northwest flavor. It can be read cover to cover, or dipped into at random.
Originated by Lorraine McConaghy and Vicki Stiles, with contributions from John Chaney, Dick Wagner, Ralph Munro, Lawrence Kreisman, Mary T. Henry, Alan Stein, Jim Compton, Patricia Filer, Olaf Kvamme, Leonard Garfield, Paula Becker, Jim Kelly, and Charles Payton. The project was made possible with support from 4Culture.
