About the Archives

Searchable PDFs of COLUMBIA – The Magazine of Northwest History, are available here. WSHS has published four issues per year since 1987. Click on the accordions below to see a thumbnail of each magazine’s cover, a link to the full PDF, and a link to the Table of Contents for an overview of each issue.

Each issue is uploaded one year past its publication date. If the issue you seek is less than one year old, you can purchase it by contacting Eileen Price (see below for order form).

Text-only versions of some articles published before 2013 are also available for download and are listed individually with each issue where available.

The 10-year index will help you find COLUMBIA articles published in 1987 through 1996: COLUMBIA Index, 1987-1996, Volumes 1 – 10. We do not currently have an index for issues beyond 1996, but that is in the works!
