King County Collects

King County CollectsKing 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.

King County Collects is being distributed by UW Press and can be ordered through your favorite local bookstore. If your organization is interested in ordering copies of the book for sale in your own institution’s bookstore, please contact UW Press Marketing Director Rachael Levay at remann@uw.edu or 617-871-0295.

We're awaiting the photos from the professional photog of AKCHO's Annual Awards event on Tuesday, but here are just a couple of pix from AKCHO's administrator in the meantime (pictured Richard Anderson, Northwest Railway Museum; Frederick Brown; Tom Ikeda, Densho). We had a great time, our host (Northwest African American Museum) was wonderful, our sponsors were generous, King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert was a terrific emcee, and our Award recipients... well, mere words can't begin to describe their importance to our community. But we'll be posting lots of words on our website over the next couple of weeks anyway, so you can read all about our honorees. That'll be at www.akcho.org
Thanks, everyone! Let's do it again next year!
