A Renaissance man.
A historian, photographer, researcher and writer.
Those are some of the words used to describe Silverton resident Gus Frederick.
Now, he has one more title to his long list – Silverton’s First Citizen for 2015.
“I was surprised, definitely honored and humbled to be recognized by my community,” Frederick said.
However, he added, he did have a notion something was amiss when he wasn’t asked to be on the selection committee for the Silverton First Citizen awards, something he normally does each year.
