HON. STANLEY HALLETT, one of the leading citizens of Medical Lake,
Washington, was born in England, in 1851, a son of Jesse Hallett, also a native of that country. Mr. Hallett was educated at Peckham College, near London, where he took a classical course, passed a very high examination, and received the silver medal as a reward of merit. He came to America in 1872, locating in California, where he was engaged in merchandising and other business five years.

In 1877 he came to Medical Lake, Washington, where he was among the pioneer settlers, and through him the name of Medical Lake was given to the town which is now his home. His nearest neighbor to the west was then thirty miles distant, in addition to his other business interests, he is also largely interested in real estate, and is the largest land-holder in the city, owning about one-fourth of the town site. He has graded four miles of street in Medical Lake at his own expense. He was the first Mayor of this city, and has been four times City Treasurer. He also served as County Commissioner two years, and as State Commissioner of the Insane Asylum for one term, D.M. Drumheller and B.B. Glascock completing the board, and under these gentlemen the institution was first erected.

Mr. Hallett was married, in 1882, to Miss Margaret Orion, a native of
England. She died in 1888, and during the following year Mr. Hallett married Miss Emily Orion, a sister of his former wife. By the latter marriage there is one child: Margaret.

Mr. Hallett is building what will be one of the finest residences in Medical Lake, at a cost of $15,000, which will have all the modern improvements. He is one of the most public-spirited citizens in the State. Socially, he is a member of the Lodge No. 70, I.O.O.F., of which he is Past Grand Representative. In religion, both he and his wife are members of the Congregational Church.
