Keynote Speaker

Alaskan Way Seawall under construction, June 1934. Courtesy Seattle Municipal Archives, 8900.

Jennifer Ott, assistant director of HistoryLink, is an environmental historian who has explored how people have shaped and been shaped by landscapes across the Northwest for the Oregon Historical Quarterly,, and Seattle magazine. The Waterfront Seattle project currently underway is transforming the central waterfront but it is not the first time the city has remade its shoreline. After decades of arguing about how to build (and pay) for a seawall north of Madison Street, it was finally completed in 1936 – just in time for developments in transportation and shipping that would lead to a cascade of further changes. Historian Jennifer Ott will tell us the story of how the waterfront we know came to be and take a peek into its future.
