About this item

This biography chronicles life and impact of Ezra Meeker, a mid-19th century hops farmer in the Washington Territory’s Puyallup Valley. There is much information on the collaboration between his company, E. Meeker and Co., and brewer Henry Weinhard, and how they established the foundation for the beer industry in the Pacific Northwest. The book also details Meeker’s role in the region’s politics, women’s suffrage, and philanthropy, and examines the reasons behind his later financial problems. The book draws on archives of Meeker’s correspondence and includes b&w historical and contemporary photos. Author Dennis Larsen has written two other books on Ezra Meeker.
