The Archdiocese of Seattle and University of Washington have a great reading list for the Catholic History of the Northwest.  I am showing only the works of Father Wilfred Schoenberg, SJ as he was so prolific in his research and his book  Paths to the Northwest reads like an adventure novel in the first half.

     The purpose of this bibliography is to list several resources currently in print and        on  film regarding Catholic Northwest history. Included are publications, audiovisual      materials, and manuscripts. While some of the materials listed may only contain          limited references to a particular topic, these are often the only references available.     Additionally, books regarding national Catholic history that will assist a researcher in     placing local events into national context, are listed at the end of the Publications         section. 94
