J. S. White: Our First Architect documents White’s surviving structures from 19th-century Snohomish with essays by local historian Warner Blake and color portraits by photographer Otto Greule.
White left nothing behind except his buildings, so Blake combed through newspapers of the time to discover White’s story and identify his structures. Particularly notable is the White Building — the builder-architect’s own two-story red brick masterpiece, which was misidentified for more than 50 years. Generously illustrated with over 60 historic photographs, this book is also the story of the city’s rise and fall as the birthplace of Snohomish County.
