Tacoma-born Murray Morgan was a preeminent historian of the Puget Sound region, as well as journalist, political commentator, theater and arts reviewer, political activist, freelance writer, and college history teacher. He was author of 21 books and a spellbinding teacher who from 1969 to 1981, taught a Northwest history course at the Tacoma Community College. He was author of South on the Sound: An Illustrated History of Tacoma and Pierce County (with Rosa Morgan), among many other books. Perhaps his best-known book is Skid Road: An Informal Portrait of Seattle. In print almost continually since its publication by Viking Press in 1951, Skid Road is considered by many to be the best history of Seattle. (bio by: Bona Rae Villarta)

I miss you, Prof, from my days at UPS (47-51). My favorite Morgan book is "Bridge to Russia."
