This project was originally created by University of Puget Sound students enrolled in Digital History (399) during the spring of 2017. An additional round of editing and additions were made by students in Doing History (200) during the spring of 2018. Working in concert with Professor Andrew Gomez, the students were responsible for conducting primary and secondary research, writing original pieces of analysis, and using a variety of digital tools to enhance their arguments. 

Students in this course were also responsible for turning the “Tacoma Riot of 1885” Wikipedia entry from a “stub” to a full article.

Inquiries related to the project can be directed to AndrewGomez@pugetsound.edu.
