Linda Hackbarth

Linda Hackbarth, a retired educator, became fascinated with the history of Lake Pend Oreille after retiring to Bayview, Idaho. An assistant professor at Washington State University and longtime public school teacher, she has produced a DVD on Bayview’s early years and a book of historic photos. Her book Bayview and Lakeview and Other Early Settlements on Southern Lake Pend Oreille was published by the Museum of North Idaho in 2003. Hackbarth authored an article for the November, 2011, issue of the Pacific Northwesterner based in part on her recent research into the Seth Pope, William Abrams, W. Milnor Roberts, and Miles Moore journals.
