“Now & Then” is a popular photo-history column in the Sunday Seattle Times’ Pacific NW Magazine and online.

The current columnists Clay Eals and Jean Sherrard, of The Seattle Times, will share a behind the scenes look at their popular photo-history column, originated by Paul Dorpat who retired in 2019.

Clay and Jean will discuss research methods and innovative touches included in ‘web extras’ they provide for each column. They’ll also pay homage to Paul Dorpat’s signature warmth and humor in his columns, which they will strive to carry on.
