Meet the Author


Susan Kaelin, the granddaughter of an early Fife pioneer, has compiled photographs from a variety of sources to tell the story of Fife between the 1890s and the mid-1960s. Like her father and other family members, Susan is a graduate of Fife High School. She pursued further education at Western Washington University and, upon graduation, taught first through eighth grades before becoming an elementary principal. She is an associate faculty/field supervisor for City University of Seattle. Before beginning this project, Susan served for three years on the board of the Fife Historical Society and was the curator of a number of early exhibits for the Fife History Museum.
