Summary

¿His achievements are woven into Seattle and the surrounding region so durably that they are taken for granted even as Puget Sound, Lake Washington, and Mount Rainier.¿¿Roy O. Hadley Despite Seattle¿s dismal condition upon his 1881 arrival, a young, ambitious, and educated Reginald Heber Thomson recognized the fledgling city¿s potential. Throughout the following decades, his dedicated guidance produced a workable sewage system, a clean, reliable water supply, regraded streets, and more. "Shaper of Seattle" recounts the life and work of an extraordinary man and his devotion to the Emerald City.
