From The Archives Friday: Whaling Days 1975

July 25th, 2014 by Meegan Reid

I was looking for something timely to post this week and figured finding the first negatives of Whaling Days would be perfect.

While my “research” (you see research sounds so much more professional than googling, but let’s face it, I just googled all of this) turned up that Whaling Days started in 1972, further research (ahem more googling) turns up that 1975 was the first annual festival as we know it today. If I am incorrect in this, blame google.

I can tell you that 1975 was the earliest box of negatives that I could find any sleeves labeled “Whaling Days”, so google could be correct. ;)

    These are so cool!!!

    My family was involved in whaling days for years! My dad raced boats, #221 the Jo-Mar-Le (named after his daughters Josie, Mary, and Lea) 1975 was before the Jo-Mar-Le days because I wasn’t born yet, but he was racing before my time! Even after he couldn’t race any longer, he’d MC. He had a background in journalism and radio. Also, he and his best friend, Glen Brook had a lot to do with Whaling Days and the Kitsap County Fair…and Armed Forces. He really was very active guy. He is very much missed! I wonder what my dad, Glen, and his other good friend Fred Watson think when they watch these festivals from above…
    Oh! You almost got a tear out of me!
