About this collection

The Town Crier was a weekly magazine focusing on Seattle’s news, arts and culture published between 1910 and 1938. Articles featured local artists, musicians, photographers and actors and reviewed local performances. The magazine covered the work of Frank Kunishige, Edward S. Curtis, Ella McBride, Paul Gustin, Kenneth Callahan, Mark Tobey, Roi Partridge, Imogen Cunningham and more. In addition to coverage of the arts, the paper's editorial section discussed Seattle news and politics as well as national news such as World War I, Prohibition, and the Great Depression.
