Discovering Oregon history through the Oregon Blue Book

Every 2 years for more than 100 years the Oregon Blue Book has provided a unique view of who we are and the events that impacted our state. This has included women winning the right to vote, bridges and buildings created as part of the Works Progress Administration, our state centennial celebrations, the Columbus Day storm and much more. Darrell Jabin; Oregon’s Traveling Historian reviewed stories in dozens of the books and interviewed many Oregon Secretaries of State who had the responsibility of creating them. He will share a one of a kind presentation taking people through more than 100 years of Oregon history as shown in the Oregon Blue Books.
