Object Name Brochure
Scope & Content Whitney-Fidalgo Seafoods, Inc., expanded its plant in 1968 and acquired two new companies during 1969, for a total of seven acquisitions between 1964 and 1969. On August 10, 1972, the ANACORTES AMERICAN reported that it was "one of the nation's largest salmon canners and is also a leading supplier of salmon roe, canned tuna and crab and fresh and frozen salmon and halibut." By 1985 the plant in Anacortes was closed and the contents auctioned off is a two-day period in late October. The limited frozen fish capacity of the Anacortes plant and the restructuring of Whitney-Fidalgo, whose headquarters were by then in Seattle, led to its demise. Although the address on this brochure of products lists 2360 West Commodore Way in Seattle, it also lists Anacortes as one of its canneries; this brochure must have been produced before 1985.
