This scrapbook was assembled by Ray Bishop, Port of Seattle engineer involved in construction of Seattle-Tacoma (Sea-Tac) International Airport. The scrapbook includes photos documenting the construction from the initial grading work through expansion in the early 1960s and clippings documenting events at Sea-Tac through 1976. Bishop donated the scrapbook to the Port of Seattle in 1977.
The Port of Seattle was established as the first public port district in Washington State by the voters in King County in 1911. Since its inception the Port has developed and operated marina, shipping and warehouse facilities on Elliott Bay, Salmon Bay, Shilshole Bay and the Duwamish Waterway. The Port also owns and operates Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, which officially opened in 1947. The Port is governed by a five-member Board of Commissioners, who are elected at large by King County voters.
