The Seattle Municipal Archives has been a leader in putting important historical municipal documents online for well over a decade, and this digital document libraries collection is an important part of their work. These document libraries were conceived as a resource for teachers and students of Washington State history, and they contain primary source documents from key events in the Evergreen State's past. Visitors can make their way through document collections that include "The Great Seattle Fire of 1889", "Hoovervilles in Seattle", "Women in the Fire Department", and "Unemployment and the WPA in Seattle". Each collection contains a brief overview, the primary documents, and a bibliography. The documents are quite amazing, and they include letters from local officials, citizen petitions, and photographs.
