If you’re not from around here, you might not have heard about University Place. But you probably have heard about Tacoma. Here’s a few reasons why.
Tacoma claims golfing great Ken Still and bowler extraordinaire Earl Anthony. Richard Brautigan (author), Dale Chihuly (glass artist), Frank Herbert (“Dune”), Pappy Boyington (World War II Marine Corps ace fighter pilot), Gary Larson (“Far Side” cartoonist), Ron Cey (baseball great), Sugar Ray Seales (1972 Olympic Gold Medal boxer): All were either born here or raised here.
