Synopsis:

Although Asahel Curtis earned his living as a commercial photographer, his major focus was outside the camera lens. He had an enduring passion for Mount Rainier, climbing its spectacular heights on multiple occasions. He was a Yakima Valley farm owner, a dedicated member of Washington's good roads movement, and a founder of the Seattle Mountaineers Club. The first full-length biography of this premier photographer/booster/mountaineer,Developing the Pacific Northwest examines his work, his family and business relationships, his involvement with eastern Washington irrigation and cooperative marketing, and his beliefs about resource development.

From the Inside Flap:

Asahel Curtis (1875-1941) began his lifelong career at his older brother Edward's successful Seattle photography studio. Armed with a box camera, he joined the Klondike gold rush, capturing numerous images of the trail, miners, gold creeks, and Dawson City. But after he returned home in 1899, he found himself at odds with Edward over those very photographs. The conflict led to an enduring estrangement and in time, Asahel opened his own studio. Even though he earned his living as a commercial photographer, his major focus was outside the camera lens.

Asahel married and purchased a farm in the Yakima Valley. He was a dedicated member of Washington's good roads movement, striving for economic development and increased tourism. His own climbing experiences motivated him to help found the Seattle Mountaineers Club and chair the Mount Rainier Advisory Board. He fought long and vigorously for the advancement of Mount Rainier National Park. His overarching goal was not personal gain, but economic development and increased tourism for Washington.

Developing the Pacific Northwest is the first full-length biography of the photographer-booster-mountaineer. Along with comparisons to work by his more famous brother and other contemporaries, the author devotes attention to Asahel's earlier years, his family and business relationships, his involvement with irrigation and cooperative marketing in eastern Washington, and his beliefs about resource development. Taken together, they provide a comprehensive study of this premier Pacific Northwest photographer.

“This is a work of sound scholarship--seasoned, wise and meticulous. [It] offers our most comprehensive and sensitive understanding of Asahel Curtis, a significant participant in shaping Washington State as we know it today.”--Dr. Lorraine McConaghy, public historian
