Writing Our History Project: Marjorie Walker

Old Argyle, Watercolor – contributed by J.R.Garrett

A committee of the Writing Our History Project members and the Town of Friday Harbor Arts Commission is looking for artwork by, and stories about artist and islander Marjorie Walker.

If any of your readers have information, art, letters, articles about or anything that would contribute to an upcoming history installation and historylink.org essay we would love to hear from them. (We want to take photos of the artwork.) We will also be doing interviews with people who knew Marjorie or who had family members that did.

Also, we just discovered that Marjorie Walker wrote, illustrated and published a children’s book called The Great Big Ferry Boat Named Klickitat. Only 500 copies were printed. We must find a copy of this book. If anyone owns a copy or has a lead to someone who does, please contact me as soon as possible.

Calls should be directed to Sandy Strehlou, Town of Friday Harbor historic preservation coordinator, (360) 622-2037. Thank you!
