There were 3 students from the 1915 Washougal graduating class, compared with 4 the year before. The entire year book will be posted within a few days. The resolution is quite good for the photos taken so long ago....and it is my intention to enlarge the image of the 3 graduating seniors, home in on and give Edith Pinn a meaningful kiss from 98 years after her photo here was taken. …Continue

I was rumaging around in a basement storage room this morning and pulled out a box containing many copies of Washougal's own newspaper The Columbia Valley Advocate from the middle 1940's, and I was fascinated by how "hometownish" it was back then when there were so fewer people than now. I recognized so many people's names, and ads from stores that have not existed for many, many years.
Below is a small sample from the September 21, 1944 issue, with the Column titled Junior High News…Continue

Marian Elvrum Martin pointed out that she thinks the couple dancing in a photo I had posted in an early blog from the 1947 Washougal High Prom is that of Liane White and Bob Phillips, and she is most certainly correct as the photos here confirm. I had incorrectly identified him as Loren Rho…Continue

I remember the night like it happened yesterday. I was working on number 6 paper machine that night and Cliff was working on number 7. About 8PM we were both in between reels so I grabbed my lunch and headed for number 7 where Cliff was taking his break.
I started eating my lunch and asked Cliff if he was ready for Christmas. He didn't say anything so I asked him again. He then told me that there wasn't going to be a Christmas at there house this year. That he had $17 in his…Continue
I found this web page 11 days ago, and as I'd moved away after grade school and didn't graduate there, I wanted to thank Eldon for this great site. After chatting with him I decided to join, so I signed up last Saturday. Sunday morning, even before I opened my approval, I had an email from Jim Morgan. We'd been together since we were toddlers, and grew up together. He and Judi just happened to be out here following his class reunion, and on Tuesday night, after 55 years, they were in our…Continue

I first met Cliff about 20 years ago when we were, for a short time, both members of the Washougal Lion's Club. I ran into him again, some years later in the Showboat, an establishment in Camas/Washougal that sold alcoholic beverages. We talked over a couple of beers and he shared some of his story. He grew up in the Bay Area of California. After finishing school there, he entered the service, returned afterwards to the Bay Area for a short time, and then migrated north to this area in the…Continue
