Relander Collection

 

Overview

The Relander Collection consists of historical manuscript collections, books, private papers, ephemera, maps, audiotapes, microfilm, periodicals, newspapers, and photographs collected by Click Relander, former Yakima editor and author.

The primary focus of the collection is Pacific Northwest history. Relander's activities as a researcher and his interest in the Native Americans of Central Washington led him to collect documentary source materials of national historic importance, spanning Washington's territorial period through mid-20th century America.
