We had a wonderful gathering of historians Saturday (Mar 18) at the Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center in Stanwood in spite of the driving rain.

Representatives from all of our Heritage organizations met to share ideas and learn more about each other projects.  Once again this year the projects were amazing efforts of research and interpretation and all worthy of recognition.
Our judge this year, Fred Poyner IV, of the Nordic Heritage Museum felt that the winner best met our criteria and stood out was the historical novel:
*Sawdust Empire* by J. D. Howard (James Cuthill)

Historical novel featuring the mystery and various perspectives on the 1916 Everett Massacre and shingle weavers union strike. It also tells the story of the timber industry of the day and life in Snohomish County at the time.

The Malstrom Award luncheon again was wonderful gathering for local historians throughout Snohomish County.  Hearing about the projects that we are all working on is inspiring.

Thanks to Otto Greule and Warner Blake for their program on the Architect J. S. White and the complexities of taking good quality architectural photographs.  We have run into the problems involved in documenting our historic buildings and it is great to know some of the tricks of a great photographer who doesn’t rely totally on Photoshop but real photographic techniques.

For Projects in 2015 :

The Mukilteo Walking Tour

A joint project between the Mukilteo Historical Society and Jericho Bridge Church. Don Saul, President, Mukilteo Historical Society.

The Mukilteo Historical Society (MHS) and Jericho Bridge Church (JBC) created a self-guided walking tour of Mukilteo Lighthouse Grounds and Park. The tour has 14 tour stops covering approximately .5 miles of paved, level ground. The tour is summarized in a brochure available at the Park, various outlets around the city, on 2 ferries (and their terminals), and at the Future of Flight Museum. The tour stops have signs attached to existing historical/informational signs. A website (www.mukilteowalkingtour.com) was built for the tour with even more detail information on the stops (written and audio content). The audio content is narrated by 10 Mukilteo residents and actors.

For Publications in 2015 :

Everett’s First Schools- 2016 Calendar

Creator:  Historic Everett, Everett WA

Each year (since 2005) Historic Everett develops an educational, full color, masterpiece calendar on a topic that is relevant to Everett’s history. The calendar is not only a chronology of dates for that year (2016) but designed to be an anecdotal history lesson for future generations.  This is the latest in an excellent series of calendars featuring well documented and researched history of the City of Everett.  It has long been a great contribution towards these efforts.
