King County Collects

Treasures of Our Historical Organizations

Sweeping from Seattle to the summit of the Cascades, King County covers a varied slice of land and people. King County Collects tells their stories through historic photos combined with color photos of artifacts from the collections of over sixty heritage organizations. Authoritative but informal captions give snippets from the colorful past of this region, weaving a picture of an ethnically diverse population pursuing many occupations. 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 art lovers and history buffs, but 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.
