On October 1, 1910, Joseph B. Dwyer, agent for the Western Transit Company, arranged a luncheon meeting at the Rathskellar Café. Twenty-seven men, representing the various lines serving Seattle, were in attendance. The following Saturday, October 8, 1910, Frank W. “Pop” Parker was appointed Temporary Chairman and later was elected to become the Club’s first president for 1911. It was further decided to include traffic managers of different industries and limit the membership to those holding positions of chief clerk or higher for railroads and steamship lines.
The Club was named the Seattle Traffic Club. In 1912 the Club was incorporated and the name The
Transportation Club of Seattle was selected. Washington State provided incorporation certificate number 22797, mailed November 8, 1912, signed by I.M. Howell, Secretary of State.
