SCHOOL, LISTER (Lister School) in Salishan Community - 1

Mrs. Catherine Egan was reading to the second graders at Lister Elementary. The storytelling was a part of the program "Reading is FUNdamental," organized by the American Association of University Women. The program's purpose was to encourage children to read after school students would attend the storytelling and then choose a book to bring home. Photo by staff member Bob Rudsit.

SCHOOL, LISTER (Lister School) in Salishan Community - 3

“Low enrollments and inefficient structures may force Tacoma to close some schools, rebuild or remodel others.” Lister elementary was expensive to upkeep and faced several problems. It was 300 students short of its total capacity of 650. The school was initially built as a community center, and gymnasium and additions were later added. The different elements fit together awkwardly. Photo by staff member Warren Anderson.
