Tacoma Mayor Mike Parker listens as President Jimmy Carter speaks during his brief stay in Tacoma on September 23, 1980. The President was probably addressing the Democratic faithful at a $1000-a-couple fundraiser held at the Bicentennial Pavilion. He was in a tight battle with Republican candidate Ronald Reagan for the 1980 presidential elections and had made short visits to Los Angeles, San Jose and Portland before reaching Tacoma.

A smiling President Jimmy Carter on September 23, 1980, the date of his brief stopover in Tacoma. President Carter was on a whirlwind four-state tour as he campaigned not only for his own re-election but also for other Democratic incumbents and candidates. He was greeted heartily by his supporters upon his arrival on Air Force One at McChord AFB and also during his stops at Beacon Senior Citizen Center, Continental Grain terminal, the Carter-Mondale campaign office on Pacific Ave. and finally at the Bicentennial Pavilion for a Democratic Party fundraiser. The President squeezed in all these visits during a mere three hours in Tacoma.

President Jimmy Carter was only the ninth president to visit Tacoma while holding down the nation's top office. He paid a brief three-hour visit on September 23, 1980, while on a whirlwind tour of four West Coast states. The President was running for re-election in November and Washington was one of the states that he failed to carry in 1976. He would lose the 1980 election to Republican Ronald Reagan by a wide margin, and carry only five states. Washington was not one of them.

President Jimmy Carter, much to the consternation of his Secret Service agents, has unexpected climbed onto the rooftop of his armored limousine as it stopped in downtown Tacoma. He turned and waved to the crowds lining Pacific Avenue for about 30 seconds before descending. Those stuck in the back of the 15-deep crowds were thus able to get a clear view of the President. President Carter then shook as many hands as possible outside the Carter-Mondale campaign office at 9th & Pacific. (TNT 9-24-08, p. A-3-article) TPL 1609

Under a sea of umbrellas, hundreds of Tacomans await the arrival of President Benjamin Harrison on May 6, 1891, his second visit to Tacoma. A few intrepid souls have climbed and are clinging to tall poles in order to get a better view of the celebratory parade. Military and civic organizations would march up C St. and through residential Tacoma, Yakima and Division Avenues before marching back to 9th & C where a public reception was held for the President. The Gross Bros. Store, a major retail firm located at 9th & Broadway, is pictured above decorated in yards of cheerful bunting. It was just one of the many businesses spruced up for the short presidential visit.
