Description or Abstract: 

In February 2005, randomly selected museum visitors were interviewed about their interest in and knowledge about a topic for a new exhibition under development by the Washington State Historical Society (WSHS), called "Tracking the West." (Note: The working title has since been changed to "The West the Railroads Made," but this report keeps the references to the former title.) Since this is intended to be a traveling exhibition, visitors at two potential sites were interviewed: in Tacoma, Washington (at the host institution for this front-end study), and in Chicago, Illinois, at the Chicago Historical Society (CHS).
