LETTER TO THE EDITOR | A good spotlight on maritime history

Great historical article on Dec. 31, about the Croatian families that immigrated to the Seattle area (“The Croatians of Seattle’s Interbay district”).

My great-grandfather came to West Seattle from the island of Zlarin, Croatia, and had his own fishing vessel here in Seattle named the “Montana” and a few others after that.

The maritime history of Seattle is fantastic (I’ve been in the maritime industry for 10 years now), and it doesn’t get enough credit.

Thank you again for sharing this, Richard [L. Major].
