Polly Bemis: A Chinese American Pioneer
Name ______________________________ Date __________________________
This is a map of the Pacific Northwest that was published in 1881.
Although the map itself is not dated, it appeared on page 61 in the 1881 edition of Higher Geography,
published by D. Appleton and Company, New York (cover title, "Appleton's
Standard Higher Geography").
When Polly Bemis first lived in Warren, it had a different name. That
name was the same as a nearby state, which is the same as the nation's capital.
What is that name? Write it here. ______________________________
