Caption N.W. Power & Light
Description First convention of the Northwest Power and Light Association in Seattle. This group was pivotal in forming power policies in the region in the early 1900s. Douglass Allmond, Anacortes businessman, promoter, and co-founder of the ANACORTES AMERICAN in 1890, is second from right in third row from the top. He is wearing glasses and a bow tie; a pin is visible on his left lapel. Allmond, 1863-1932, sold the ANACORTES AMERICAN in 1902 and thereafter began working for the Anacortes Water Company and became its president in 1905. By 1917 that business was known as Washington Power, Light and Water Company. He retired from that business in 1925. He served a term as president of the Northwest Water Association, as well as on its board of trustees. See 03-04-1926 ANACORTES AMERICAN for a biography on Allmond.
