About

Newspaper magnate E. W. (Edward Willis) Scripps once wrote that "the best community in which to found a newspaper is one that is comparatively young and whose population has in very recent time increased." With a population of 40,000 and growing, Seattle at the turn of the century fit Scripps' description well. Scripps hired editor E. Hazard Wells to found his latest venture, the Seattle Star, on February 2, 1899.
