On April 22, 1968, the Seattle Jewish Archives Committee is created by the Women's Division of the Jewish Federation of Seattle and the University of Washington. The purpose is to collect materials documenting Seattle's Jewish history.
The first meeting was held in the Manuscripts division of the University of Washington Libraries. This committee laid the foundation for the establishment of the Washington State Jewish Historical Society, which was organized in 1980.
