Description:

Eighty Years in the Changing West is the story of Elgin V. Kuykendall (1870-1958). Born in Oakland, his family relocated to Central Washington State when he was a young child. The Kuykendall family moved to Pomeroy in Garfield County, Washington, when he was a 12, to join his grandparents.

This is a fascinating, personal story of Pomeroy and the surrounding territory for the last decades of the 19th Century and the first half of the 20th. Judge Kuykendall served in Pomeroy as a teacher, mayor, politician, lawyer, judge. He served as a justice on the state Supreme Court for 25 years.

The book includes a section on a trip to Hawaii he and his wife took in 1950 after his retirement.

Originally typewritten, duplicated, and distributed in the early 1950s to friends and family by the author, this edition has been completely re-typeset. It is 176 pages, comb-bound.
