The Oregon Historical Society (OHS) is dedicated to making Oregon’s long, complex history visible and accessible to all. For more than a century OHS has served as the state’s collective memory, gathering and preserving a vast collection of artefacts, photographs, films, manuscripts, books and oral histories. This vivid selection illuminates the depth of Oregon’s history; a history too rich to be contained within a single story or point of view. Published in conjunction with OHS’s permanent exhibit, Experience Oregon, this illustrated companion provides a glimpse of the countless people, places and events that have made the state of Oregon what it is today.
Amy E. Platt is project manager, contributor, and editor for the Oregon Historical Society’s digital history projects.
