June History Tales features researcher Peggy Norris


Peggy Norris talks about the 1950s Community Study that led to Port Angeles being named an “All America City” at the Clallam County Historical Society’s History Tales lecture series at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 2, at the First United Methodist and Congregational Church, 110 E. Seventh St. Port Angeles. Parking and entry to the church’s social hall are on Laurel Street.

Norris, who provided the research for "Port Angeles, Washington: A History, Volume 1," has spent years combing the archives of local libraries and historical societies. Her knowledge of Clallam County history provides an insight into many stories both well-known and obscure, which she relates with a wonderful sense of humor.

This program is part of the historical society’s annual meeting. Officers and directors of the society will be sworn in, Heritage Award winners will be introduced and the winner of Karen Sistek’s silk painting, "Ina May," will be announced. Refreshments will be served.

History Tales is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Clallam County Historical Society’s office at 452-2662 or e-mail artifact@olypen.com.
