I love nautical charts and appreciated your article on NOAA maps in your July 8 issue. I take exception, however, to crediting Robert Gray with “”discovering “ Tillamook Bay. This narrative ignores the fact that there were Tillamook people who already lived along the bay and the surrounding rivers and streams. We can highlight who may have played a hand in some of the modern nautical maps without perpetuating the false idea that outsiders “discovered” Tillamook Bay. It is up to all of us to get our history right.
