Riassunto: These are the stories of the twentieth century on Grays Harbor. Based on two decades of research by the staff of The Daily World, "On the Harbor" is a unique narrative of local history, with separate chapters on the fourteen top stories of the past hundred years and biographies of Citizens of the Century. Also included are a first-hand account by a veteran Wobbly on the free-speech fight of 1911, Ed Van Syckle on sailing with legendary Capt. Ralph E. Peasley, and Murray Morgan on working for the Grays Harbor Washingtonian in Hoquiam during the Depression. With more than a hundred photographs from the archives of the Daily World and the Jones Historical Collection and nearly 200 sidebars on what to read, how to speak like a native and who's who in Harbor history, this book is a suitable for everyone from the casual reader to the ardent scholar, for the coffee table or the school library. Come along and read a century's worth of stories about life on gritty old Grays Harbor.
