The Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, held on the University of Washington campus in 1909, was a major community effort that brought Seattle and Washington State (then only 20 years old) into the national spotlight. It was the first world’s fair to make a profit, provided a platform for women’s suffrage, and set the general plan for the University of Washington campus that endures to this day. This volume documents the history of the A-Y-P from its inception to the present day.
