SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Public Library Foundation and the City of Spokane have announced the first historic inductees into the Citizen Hall of Fame.


An additional number of living and deceased citizens will be inducted into the Hall of Fame through a public nomination process which ends on February 16, 2015, but the foundation announced Chief Spokane Garry (Spokan name Slough-Keetcha), May Arkwright Hutton and King Cole will be the first to be inducted. 


Chief Spokane Garry lived from 1811-1892 and was a Native American leader, educator, missionary, farmer and man of peace who spent his life trying to establish a reservation for the Spokane tribe. 


May Arkwright Hutton, who lived from 1860-1915, became the first female juror in Spokane County. She organized the suffrage movement in Eastern Washington. 


King Cole changed the face of downtown Spokane. He lived from 1922-2010 and was instrumental in brokering the deal with the city and railroad officials for the land swap. As the smallest city to ever host a world's fair, Cole created the community partnerships for Spokane to land on the international map. 


Public nominations close on February 16, 2015 and the inductees will be honored at a breakfast on April 2, 2015. To make a nomination, CLICK HERE.
