Welcome to the Eastern Washington University Library's 4th Annual Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon: Telling the Chases' Story! As a community we will collaborate to write two articles about important civic and educational leaders in the history of Spokane and Eastern Washington University. These will be biography articles--an expansion of a small existing article about James Chase, the first African American mayor of Spokane, and the creation of an article about his wife Eleanor Barrow Chase, former chair of the EWU Board of Trustees. Learn more about our history, and help to share it with our community for the future!
The goals of this event are:
The design and layout of this guide, along with some of the materials about Wikipedia and contributing to Wikipedia, are based (with grateful permission) on a guide originally developed by Freeda Brook and Roosevelt University in Chicago, Illinois.
