Erich R. Ebel has been named Marketing and Communications Director for the Washington State Historical Society.
“The unique and storied history of the State of Washington has long been a passion of mine, and I can’t fully express how satisfying it is to finally be able to put my knowledge, skills and abilities to use doing something that I love,” said Ebel, a 1996 graduate of WSU’s Edward R. Murrow School of Communication. “I’m looking forward to sharing my passion and showing others what makes Washington the greatest state in the lower forty-eight.”
Founded in 1891 and now into its second century of service, the Washington State Historical Society is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and vividly presenting Washington’s rich and varied history. The Historical Society is comprised of a family of museums and research centers, offering a variety of services to researchers, historians, scholars, and lifelong learners.
By connecting personal, local, regional, and national stories to the universality of the human experience – as well as collecting materials from Washington that help tell those stories – the Washington State Historical Society is indispensable to the people of Washington and a vital part of state government.
Ebel was previously employed at Pierce County and the Washington State Senate. Though the State History Museum is located in Tacoma, Ebel makes his home in Lacey with his wife and three children and blogs frequently at www.WashingtonOurHome.com.
