On October 20, 2010, we enjoyed a visit with WWU alumnus Charles LeWarne (BA/BAE 1955) and Pauline LeWarne. They brought additional items for the Charles Pierce LeWarne Collection, part of The Western Collection, as well as three Northwest history-related children’s books published in the 1930s, welcome gifts to the Special Collections Children’s Collection.
Charles LeWarne, who received a master’s degree in history from the University of California, Berkeley, and a doctoral degree in history from the University of Washington, is the author of numerous articles, book chapters, and monographs concerning regional history, including, most recently The Love Israel Family (2009) , the first extensively researched study of the well-known Western Washington commune.
He has been an enthusiastic contributor to The Western Collection and we thank him for his generous continuing support of this unique archive of scholarly and creative works by members of the Western community.
