Scope and content

ca. 1880. Henry Drum was elected mayor of Tacoma May 1, 1888. He defeated A.C. Smith, the Republican candidate, by a 52-vote margin. Mayor Drum, a native of Girard, Illinois, was an industrious man who had been a teacher, brick manufacturer, stock raiser, and banker, all by the age of 24. He came to New Tacoma on Christmas Eve, 1883, and in conjunction with Walter J. Thompson, bought the bank of New Tacoma, which was renamed Merchants' National Bank. Mr. Drum was elected to the school board in 1887 and the following year became the mayor of Tacoma. This picture is from "History of Washington" edited by Julian Hawthorne, American Historical Publishing Co., 1893. p.61 ALBUM 16. (North Pacific History Co.: History of the Pacific Northwest, p. 307-308)
