Can we connect this Washington Notable before December 7 - Mary Anderson day? [closed]

+4 votes

In honor of Mary's 100th birthday in 2009, December 7th became Mary Anderson day in Washington State and the City of Seattle.

Requests have been sent to REI and the Mountaineers for a public use image.

Any help would be appreciated!

Still no response from the Mountaineers. REI got back and they do not have an image that we can use.

That's strange - because the photo in the WSJ is credited to REI.

ETA link :

I know, it's really weird. I used to work there and they have quite a few images of her throughout her lifetime. Really was hopeful that they would be interested in her profile here. Maybe it was just the employee who returned my email. I'll try and see if I can get a response from some old co-workers.

Well, before I posted here, I had sent them (REI) an email.

Just got a response :


Thank you for your interest in REI.

Please send your request in writing to publicaffairs @, including the full details of the proposed use of REI's image or photo. Our Public Affairs team asks for a minimum of two weeks advance notice to review such requests.

Regrettably, due to the volume of requests that we receive, we are unfortunately not able to honor them all.

Thanks again for your interest in REI, and we look forward to reviewing your request.



Did you want to follow up from here?

yep, that's where i sent the request. just posted on LinkedIn where I'm connected with some old coworkers:
Ok, I'll leave it and see if you hear back from them .. otherwise I could cobble something up, maybe.
