SITE INFO



 
 
In 2010, the renowned British Museum in London produced a series of podcasts entitled The History of the World in 100 Objects.  The series traced the progress of humanity by exploring objects in the British Museum, from a stone age chopping tool to a solar-powered lamp.  In 2013, the Smithsonian Museum followed suit with A History of America in 101 Objects.

With this series of essays, I will use the same approach to tell the story of the growth of the Catholic Church in the Pacific Northwest through significant objects that can be found in local archives.  If you have a significant object you think should be featured, please let me know!  —  Corinna Laughlin
