Despite Seattle's dismal infrastructure upon his 1881 arrival, a young, ambitious, and educated Reginald Heber Thomson recognized the fledgling city's potential. Throughout the following decades, his dedicated guidance produced a clean, reliable water supply, a workable sewage system, regraded streets, and more. Shaper of Seattle recounts the life and work of an extraordinary man and his devotion to the Emerald City.
