M.C. TRUE. – The proprietor of the Palace Hotel at the city of Pullman, Washington, is a native of Indiana, and was born in 1847. While but a boy, his family removed to California, locating in 1853, upon a farm. Somewhat later his father began hotel-keeping and is still the proprietor of the Suscol House at Napa. While at that place young True received a good education, and assisted in the hotel, but in 1880 sought a field of his own. He went to Moscow, Idaho Territory, and leased and ran the Barton House. Two years later he came to Pullman, and built and has since conducted the finest hotel in that city. In 1887 it was enlarged to a capacity of twenty-five rooms.

Aside from his private business, Mr. True takes a leading interest in the public schools, having served as clerk for two years. The facilities of the schools have been increased to accommodate seventy-five pupils. A healthy public feeling on the subject of education prevails; and the three children of the gentleman of whom we write illustrate their father’s interest and care in this regard. The agricultural resources and railway facilities at Pullman assure its steady growth; and while not expecting to rival such places as Walla Walla, Spokane Falls, or the City of Destiny, it will always be an important commercial point. There Mr. True has a pleasant home, and enjoys life with his family, having been married in California, and having three promising children.
