Biographical NoteReturn to Top

From his arrival in Seattle in 1860 until his death in 1932 at the age of eighty-eight, Clarence Bagley was concerned with the growth of Washington as a Territory and State in general, and Seattle's growth as a city in particular. Soon after their arrival and his father's appointment as University Commissioner, Bagley became a clerk in the Surveyor General's office in 1866, shortly after his marriage to Alice Mercer.

This move brought him directly into politics and into the printing trade as well. While working in the Surveyor General's office in Olympia, Bagley came under the tutelage of Randall Hewitt, owner of the Territorial Republican and the Temperance Echo. With L. G. Abbott he bought the Echo in 1868 but sold his interest shortly thereafter and took employment with the Commercial Age, organ of the Republican Party. When this newspaper was discontinued in 1870, he returned to Seattle, remaining until May 1871, when he became deputy in the internal revenue office, holding the position until 1873. While in this office he worked with the Puget Sound Courier, finally buying it in 1873, and emerging as Territorial Printer for the next ten years. He sold the Courier and the printing office in 1884, returning to Seattle to stay in 1885 after a brief interval in Portland as a deputy collector of internal revenue.

By now a confirmed publisher, Clarence Bagley joined with others and purchased the Post-Intelligencer in 1886, which he managed until L. S. J. Hunt took it over that same year. Other ephemeral ventures followed, one in banking and one again in newspapers, joining with Homer Hill for two years in publishing the Daily Press

In 1890 he was elected to the House of Delegates of the City Council from where he fought open gambling and Seattle's "open town" policy with the result that doors were barred on many of the "gambling hells. " Following upon this experience in elective office he acted as an adviser in writing the 1893 city charter, contributing clauses affecting assessments for local improvements.

From 1893 until his appointment as Secretary of the Board of Public Works in 1900, he worked in the City Comptroller's office. He continued as Secretary of the Board until his retirement in 1929. These experiences in city government and his ever-present concern for governmental efficiency led him to become candidate in 1909 for the Republican nomination for councilman from the Eighth Ward. He announced his candidacy in letters to friends, but did not actively canvass his ward for votes. He stressed his alarm with what, in his opinion, was a growing trend toward mismanagement and extravagance in city affairs. Promising a "square deal, " Bagley felt this could be changed with a business-like economy and management terminating in better, cleaner government.

The election itself, with its many side issues, was unsettling for him as he associated political reporting with what he considered to be honestly partisan, and took exception to the methods used by 1910 newspapermen, not only in his own case but on behalf of all the candidates. He lost the election to Elbert F. Blaine, and explained that the loss was due to his association with the "City Hall Gang, " whom the voters had rejected completely.

Until this point in his career, he appears to have been a public servant first and a historian second. Now his interest in historical writing resurfaced. He had begun two years previously to edit the manuscripts of William I. Marshall's Acquisition of Oregon Marshall, whom Bagley had met in 1905, had devoted twenty years to disproving the "Whitman Saved Oregon" myth, and after his death in 1906, Bagley and Thompson Coit Elliott, both interested in seeing the work published, joined to edit the manuscript and to assist the widow financially.

Despite feeling that his position with the Board of Public Works took too much time away from historical study, he stayed on as Secretary, editing Marshall's work for publication in his spare time; it appeared in 1911. This was followed by publication of articles in historical quarterlies and journals, and in 1916, The History of Seattle appeared, culminating more than two years of research.

With publication of this work, Clarence Bagley's often-expressed dream of writing the history of his region was becoming a reality. He had little sympathy for writers who romanticized the facts of history into fiction that bore little or no resemblance to actuality. However, his view of "actuality" was restricted by rigid adherence to the "pioneer code" on the one hand and self-imposed limitations on the other, as he illustrated in a letter to Edmond S. Meany in 1911:

"Sometime I shall write a history of Seattle, and while what I shall say will be the truth I shall not give all the truth. I shall rake up no old stories of evil. "

His activities were not confined to writing. He gave his time freely in efforts to organize pioneer societies and similar groups, frequently being called upon for speeches and public appearances in connection with pioneer-inspired celebrations.

In 1905 he had become deeply involved in a dispute between the historical societies of Seattle and Tacoma. Consolidation of effort and location under the aegis of the State was suggested by the Seattle group when its members (including Meany, Cornelius Hanford, Thomas Burke, Roger S. Greene and John P. Hoyt) decided that the Tacoma society was "dead. " Most of the members of the Seattle group had aided in founding the Washington State Historical Society in 1891. But the early years turned into a struggle for mere existence which Bagley et al regarded as a hindrance to accomplishment of the Society's original purposes of collection and preservation of historical source materials. This suggestion revitalized the slumbering rivalry of the two cities and the battle was joined. Bagley became the unofficial spokesman for the Washington University State Historical Society which had been newly founded. In a letter to Professor J.N. Bowman of the State Normal School in Bellingham, he explained:

"Experience had proved that the Societies thus allied with State Universities have done the best work, and that this will be true here."

Proposals of merger were not accepted by Tacoma, and the Washington State Historical Society remained a separate body. Unallied with the Tacoma group in either effort or ideals, Bagley was elected president of the Washington University State Historical Society, and under his leadership the work of collecting and preserving original data was begun. His vision of a central repository for historical research materials was challenged once again in 1915, when the King County Historical Society sought allocation of land on University-owned property.

In a letter to Winlock W. Miller of Seattle, Bagley called for a "concert of action in historical efforts, " insisting that "I have seen so many similar efforts live a precarious existence and finally die from slow decay that I may be permitted to express doubts as to the long life or active work of the present one."

In the public mind Bagley symbolized Pacific Northwest history in many ways. The post-office delivered letters to him addressed merely "Historian, Seattle, Washington;" newspapers of the city began to refer to him affectionately as "Pop, " and the Seattle Chamber of Commerce directed all of its inquiries on historical matters to his desk in City Hall.

In 1929 he brought out his History of King County. With retirement, articles and pamphlets began to appear with regularity. Indian Myths of the Northwest, "compiled, annotated and expurgated" as he wrote to a friend, was published in 1930.

Plans for future publications simmered. Clarence Bagley began 1932 with letters to friends expressing enthusiasm for his many historical projects, and often a small boast regarding his health. He was proud of the two-mile walk he took each day from his home on Seattle's Queen Anne hill "to town, rain or shine. " But a lingering cold developed into pneumonia, and on February 17, 1932, "Pop" Bagley died.

Sharp delineation of young Clarence Bagley's character and activities, as well as the social and economic motivations that inspired them, may be found in the voluminous correspondence between father and son during the twenty-odd years when Clarence Bagley was in Olympia. Weekly letters, exchanged from 1862 until the middle 1870s, are rich in commentary on politics, business, and society. Here the researcher will discover a tempestuous, impatient and often hot-headed son urging his father into political activity and real estate ventures (the Bagleys were part-owners of a coal mine on which they hoped to realize a profit by selling their interests at the opportune time; and both father and son speculated on property in King and Thurston Counties); while letters from Reverend Bagley to his son contain steadying advice and occasional urgings to declare his allegiance to the Church.

Hints of what actually transpired between Clarence Bagley and Selucius Garfielde, as the latter's political career waned, are found in the letters which Garfielde wrote to Bagley. Although Bagley did not consistently preserve his outgoing correspondence until 1903, there are many of the details of the earlier years in letters to his father and in the retrospective exchange of letters with Edward Huggins (former Hudson's Bay Company employee and later owner of the Puget Sound Agricultural Company). Although Huggins was older and their contacts had been few during the time of Huggins's residence at Fort Nisqually, the younger Bagley in later years came to regard him as a contemporary. They had shared an experience, as pioneers, that set them apart from friends met later in life. Between 1903 and Huggins's death in 1907, more than three hundred letters passed between them. As a result, the Huggins-Bagley exchange of letters is a rich source of historical and anecdotal material about many of the more prominent figures of early Puget Sound history.

Shortly after Huggins's death, Bagley acquired another, equally prolific correspondent in Thompson Coit Elliott. Their previously mentioned partnership in editing and publishing Marshall's Acquisition of Oregon soon developed into a warm friendship. Elliott was an investment banker in Walla Walla, president of the Inland Empire Historical Society, and treasurer of Whitman College from 1895 to 1900. Because of his involvement with Bagley in publication of Marshall's work, Elliott drew bitter criticism from officials at Whitman College, who were at that time attempting to acquire the Fort Walla Walla site for further expansion of the school. Elliott held that the college was trading on the Whitman myth to accomplish what he termed a "land grab. "

From about 1911 onward, a temperate moderating spirit seems more evident in Clarence Bagley's letters. With the exception of issues on the national level of politics, he became mellow and tolerant to a degree that amazed even himself.

"... I am a very strong partisan, but of late years am more inclined to look on both sides of the ticket, except on National questions. There I am a bed rock Republican and it would be a very bad nomination indeed to make me not vote the ticket straight. "

Although he never yielded to his father's promptings to join the Methodist Church, he had been raised in an atmosphere of prejudice and dislike for missionaries of the Roman Catholic Church and agents of the Hudson's Bay Company. Beginning as early as the family's stay in Salem, the young Bagley had become fast friends with the children of the early Protestant missionaries, and had imbibed their slanted opinions regarding both Catholics and Hudson's Bay Company people. Yet in his later correspondence, Bagley seemingly could not resist pointing to the humor of his situation. He had just completed writing and editing a publication for the Roman Catholic Church, and in a note to George H. Himes, president of the Oregon Historical Society, describing his work, he concluded, "... all of this done by a son of a Protestant Clergyman will have Bishop O'Dea's approval. "

In his correspondence with Himes, he displays a natural and relaxed approach. Subtle wit, with himself often its prey, pervades the letters. His undiluted opinions on national politics, which had replaced local politics in his thoughts after 1914, appear most frequently in his letters to Himes. If he had labeled himself a "bed rock Republican" in 1904, by the end of the war he had become even more firmly entrenched in his ideas of Americanism when the specter of "Bolshevism" seemed to materialize in the strikes and riots of 1918 and 1919. Perhaps in reaction to the General Strike of 1919, which had just shaken Seattle's complacency, he mounted an attack on the alien element in the population. He declared to Himes:

"... Every 'Red,' I. W. W., Bolshevic [sic], or whatever the traitors or enemies of our government go by, they should be deported at once, and laws passed so stringent that they and their kind can never again come here. "

In municipal affairs Bagley grew uneasy about the growth of City Light under J. D. Ross' driving leadership. He really did not approve of municipal ownership of electric power, so two years after his retirement, he congratulated Mayor Edwards for firing Ross and volunteered support in the event of a recall movement being instigated against Mayor Edwards. (The Mayor was recalled.)

The varied paths which Clarence Bagley followed in his eighty-eight years, most of which are illuminated in his papers, lead to a unique distillation of another, in many ways less complex, era of American life and enterprise. It is the purpose of this necessarily limited exposition of the many facets of the Bagley papers to provide the researcher with an adequate introduction to their potential as a source of Puget Sound and Northwest history.

Denny, also one of the founders of Seattle.
