MEDFORD’S HOLLY THEATRE SET TO RESTAGE
 
For five decades the Holly Theatre served as one of downtown Medford’s
main attractions, but by 1986 the theatre couldn’t compete with smaller
multiplexes and it closed. But now it's coming back. Read how a local
foundation with assistance from the Medford Urban Renewal Agency is
restoring the Holly Theatre and what event brought over 1,000 people to
the Holly last month on Oregon Heritage Exchange at

STATE ARCHIVES SEEKING BEACH IMAGES FOR BLUE BOOK
 
The State Archives is looking for images related to the history of
Oregon's beaches, the 1913 Open Beaches act and the 1967 Beach Bill for
the upcoming edition of the Oregon Blue Book’s color section.  Of
particular interest are colorful and unusual images of the beaches;
those related to Governor Oswald West’s designation of beaches as
“public highways”; and images and memorabilia depicting the 1967
Beach Bill campaign. The time frame for this project is June 1-June 29.
 
Print versions of the Blue Book have featured a different themed color
section of a uniquely Oregon topic since 1999, with images provided by
many of the state's history organizations. The topic for the 2013-14
edition is the Oregon concept of public beaches from the 1913 Open
Beaches act to the Beach Bill of 1967. Past topics for the Blue Book
color section have included Women's Suffrage in Oregon, Oregon's Century
Farms, and the 1905 Lewis and Clark Exposition.
