Clark Kinsey Collection - University of Washington

Clark Kinsey's work as a photographer documented a vital aspect of the Pacific Northwest's economic and industrial history. Raised near Snoqualmie, Washington, Clark first practiced photography in the early 1890's with his brothers Darius and Clarence. During the Yukon Gold Rush, Clark and Clarence operated a studio in Grand Forks, where they remained for several years. About 1906, Clark returned to Seattle to operate a contracting business throughout the Northwest until shortly before World War I. From that time he returned to photography and spent the rest of his career documenting the logging and milling camps and other forest related activities in Washington, Oregon, California, and British Columbia. He was said to be the official photographer for the West Coast Lumberman's Association, and it is believed that he made approximately 50,000 negatives until his retirement in 1945. The images presented here comprise only a part of his life's work as a photographer.
