president of the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railway
; John Leary, real estate developer and former Seattle mayor;
Norman Kelly; R. C. Washburn, editor of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer; Bailey Gatzert, former mayor associated with Schwabacher's (Seattle's and the state's most
prominent Jewish-owned business of the era); A. B. Stewart; and James McNaught.
Other founding members were lawyer Eugene Carr,
Judge Thomas Burke, and William Allison Peters.
