    Sarah Cheney Willoughby (1842-1913) came to Washington Territory from Lowell, Massachusetts in 1862 to teach art at the newly founded University of Washington. After leaving the university to teach in a school in Port Townsend, in 1865 she met and married Captain Charles Willoughby, who worked at the time for the Coast Survey. Willoughby became an Indian Agent at the Neah Bay reservation in 1877, and was moved to Quinault in 1883, where he and Sarah lived (along with their younger children) until Charles's death in 1888. While on the reservation, Sarah took special interest in the culture of the local tribes, and both drew sketches of native scenes and recorded the legends and myths she was told. less
