This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information comes from Michael Houser, Washington State Architectural Historian:

Earle E. MacCannell was born in Allston, MA on January 22, 1885. As a young man, he studied at the Boston Watercolor Club and in Paris with Andre CÚzanne.  His work was exhibited at various locations in Boston including the Boston Watercolor Club in 1910 and at the Back Bay Gallery in 1912.  During WWI, MacCannell served in the Army and rose to the rank of Captain.  After the war, MacCannell had moved to California.  While there he painted murals for the Kentfield City Hall and for a home in Carmel.  His work was also exhibited at the Mill Valley City Hall in 1923. 

For reasons unknown, by the 1930s MacCannell had moved to Olympia, Washington and became a designer for the Washington State Parks Committee.  MacCannell's architectural training, if he had any, is unknown.  His designs for the Sacajawea State Park buildings are the only known structures in the state park system by him.  MacCannell used his previous skills in painting and sculpting by creating ten painted panels for the museum building.  Several remain today. 

He then went to work as an engineer for the Conservation and Development Department from 1946 to 1948 and received a ten year certificate as planning engineer for the State Highway Department before retiring in 1957.  He was a member of the First Baptist Church, and a charter member of the Washington State Historical Society. 

MacCannell died in Olympia on March 19, 1960 and is buried at the Masonic Memorial Park.
