EXCHANGE SHARES INSPIRATION FOR HISTORIC THEATRE IN LA GRANDE (
A gathering of several hundred passionate people can generate enough
energy to bring up the lights in historic theatres across the nation.
This is what happens when the League of Historic American Theatres
(LHAT) meets for its annual conference. Learn more at Oregon Heritage
Exchange, http://oregonheritage.wordpress.com (

MARTHA WASHINGTON HOTEL SUBJECT OF TALK, SEPT. 10
The Oregon Encyclopedia will present “The Martha Washington and the
Women Who Built Her” as part of its History Night lecture series at 7
p.m., Sept. 10 at McMenamins Mission Theater, 1624 NW Glisan, Portland.
Dana Plautz will discuss the history of the Portland Women’s Union and
the development of women’s boarding houses. She and Miles Sprietsma
produced a documentary film on the subject. The film follows the
Portland Women’s Union through fund raising and building the Martha
Washington Hotel through the use of images and interviews with
historians, residents of the Hotel, housing experts, and past presidents
of the organization.

strengthen operations, plan for the future and meet national standards
through self-study and a site visit from a peer reviewer. IMLS-funded
MAP grants are non-competitive and provide $4,000 of consultative
resources and services to participating museums.
MAP is supported through a cooperative agreement between the Institute
of Museum and Library Services and the American Alliance of Museums
(formerly the American Association of Museums), which accepts
applications twice per year. The next deadline is Dec. 1.
