Broken Promises

“(The PNE fairgrounds) will not be merely an exhibition grounds but will be open to the use and enjoyment of the people for the entire year.

“The gates will be ever open and it will be kept as a beautiful park, such as will be greatly appreciated by the people, particularly those in the Eastern side of the city.”

– J.J. Miller, first president of what was to be called the Pacific National Exhibition, 1910 (Columbian, January 10, 1983)
