King Cole

In a 2008 interview, King Cole, the prime mover behind Expo ‘74, describes the sad state of the Spokane River, and the city’s main street, Riverside Avenue, when he first arrived in Spokane in the 1960s. Later in the 1970s, when he traveled to Russia during the Cold War to convince the Soviets to host an exhibition hall at the world’s fair, he realized Spokane was much better off.
