The 18th Century Spanish Exploration of the Pacific Northwest


Course description

The Spanish presence in the Pacific Northwest was brief: 22 years passed between the voyages of captains Juan Pérez (1774) and José Tovar y Tamariz (1796). This presentation will start with an overview of the Spanish exploration of the Pacific Northwest, continue with an examination of Manuel de Quimper’s expedition to the Strait of Juan de Fuca in 1790 and of Tovar y Tamariz’ 1796 voyage, with its intriguing Scottish connection, and finish with an overview of the “Acts of Possession,” used by the Spanish to claim lands and waters for the king of Spain.
