There is no single source to gather information about places. Quality
research efforts require time, travel, communication and patience.
Although you’ll discover many sources on the internet, you should still
visit libraries, museums and government offices in person. Discover
valuable tips about research in Heritage Bulletin Number 12: “Research
Tips and Sources” by visiting

The Oregon Cultural Trust is in the business of investing in Oregon

In 2010, over 500,000 young people were touched by cultural programs. 
The Oregon Cultural Trust’s permanent fund is performing as intended: 
ensuring that cultural funding exists, in good times and bad.  The Trust
fund, conservatively managed by the State Treasurer’s office in an
interest-bearing account, was not affected by recent steep declines in
investment markets.

Now is the time for heritage organizations to promote the value of the
Trust and its tax credit for donations to their members. Oregon’s unique
cultural tax credit is a powerful incentive and it helps sustain
Oregon’s cultural heritage.

The Oregon Encyclopedia (The OE), continues its History Night series in
December beginning tonight at 7 p.m. with a talk by Gregg Shine titled
“The Pacific Northwest and The American Civil War” at McMenamins
Mission Theater, 1624 NW Glisan, Portland. The Northwest played an
interesting role in the Civil War—not only because its states and
territories were part of the ongoing battle over freedom and slavery—but
also because of the army’s particular relationship with the region’s
Native American groups. Shine describes the Civil War period in the
Northwest, the significant people and events that influenced the
outcome, and the role memory plays in our understanding of the Civil
War, 150 years after the first shot.
Philip Niles will present “The Portland of A.E. Doyle” at 7:30 p.m.,
Dec. 13 at the Rialto Poolroom and Bar, 529 SW 4th Ave, Portland.
Architect A.E. Doyle left his mark on Portland. The Benson Hotel, Civic
Stadium, Meier and Frank, the Pacific Building—these structures and
dozens more are reminders of Portland’s rapid growth in the early 20th
century and, significantly, how architectural design during that period
identified and legitimized institutions and the social structure of the
growing city. Historian Phil Niles examines the stages of Doyle’s
development as an architect, the evolution of his style, and how his
career reflected—and furthered—Portland’s growth.
