About the Local History & Biography Index
The Local History & Biography Index contains references to books, articles, directories, and other sources with information about the people, events and places that have shaped Tacoma's past and present.
Please be aware that inconsistencies exist due to the way entries have been created over time, so there may occasionally be more than one heading about the same subject or the same person. Information in this index is meant to augment the research materials available in the Northwest Room and to complement the resources found in other Northwest Room digital collections. It is not necessarily meant to be a comprehensive source of information on its own.
This is a regularly updated index and the sources are as cited. Every source used for the index is available to view in the Northwest Room.
