Tonight is Historic Seattle’s Fourth Annual Preservation Awards, and a local historian will be honored at the ceremony. Wallingfordian Paul Dorpat is the recipient of the Living Landmark Award for his, “outstanding contribution to our understanding of Seattle history and his role in shaping a broad public appreciation of our built (and in many unfortunate cases lost) environment.”
Cloud Bank, 45th Street and Meridian Avenue, 2008, by Paul Dorpat.
Dorpat is perhaps best known for his “Now & Then” series in the Seattle Times’ Pacific Northwest magazine.
From Historic Seattle’s blog:
Through his research, publications, website, public lectures and the generous sharing of his vast knowledge about the history of our city with other researchers, Paul Dorpat has made “then” a very important part of “now” for which we are very grateful.
The awards ceremony is tonight at the Wallingford Good Shepherd Center (4649 Sunnyside Ave N.) from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Click here for more info.Tweet
