An old UW building where the ‘Boys in the Boat’ hung out has many layers of history, says Knute Berger, who is all for the current effort to restore it to its former glory
A Seattle native, Berger was editor of Seattle Weekly three times in the '90s and '00s. He is also the founding editor and publisher of Eastsideweek, one of the country's first suburban alternative weeklies and a former editor at Washington magazine. Knute's column in Seattle magazine offers a critical look at the changing face of our city and region. As editor at large, Berger contributes his insight to Seattle's politics, culture and civic issues. Berger's Mossback column and reporting is featured on crosscut.com. He also has made regular appearances on KUOW and KCTS9. He is author of Pugetopolis, which contains some of his best Seattle magazine columns and, more recently, Space Needle: Spirit of Seattle, the culmination of his work as the Space Needle's writer-in-residence.
