Oregon's State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation will consider nominations to the National Register of Historic Places in a two-day meeting June 16-17 at the Brookside Inn & Suites, 2020 Leigh Way, White City.  Sessions will begin at 1:15 p.m. June 16 and 9 a.m. June 17 and are open to the public.

The committee will review a multiple property document and two associated nominations for the Central Oregon Irrigation District; and nominations for the Eagle Point National Cemetery in Eagle Point; the Camp White Station Hospital Administration Building in White City; the Nyla L. Jebousek House in Newport; and the Vancouver Avenue First Baptist Church in Portland.  A boundary decrease for a National Register property in Portland, the William B. Holden House, will also be reviewed. The agenda and electronic copies of all meeting documents<http://www.oregonheritage.org/OPRD/HCD/NATREG/nrhp_sachphome.shtml> are available online.

Nominations recommended by the SACHP go to the National Park Service, which maintains the Register under the authority of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. Members of the committee hold credentials in many historic preservation-related fields.

The meeting site is accessible to people with disabilities. Special accommodations for the hearing impaired may be made by calling (503) 986-0655. More information about the National Register<http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/NATREG/Pages/index.aspx> and Oregon properties listed in the register is available online.


More than a decade ago the University of Oregon libraries began wrestling with increasing costs and changing public desires related to its Oregon newspaper collection. The newest Oregon Heritage Exchange blog<https://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/2016/06/07/digital-newspaper-collection-adds-pages-titles-and-newer-papers-collects-award/> describes what has happened since.


The Bosco-Milligan Foundation board has appointed Stephanie Whitlock as its new executive director. She succeeds founding director Cathy Galbraith, who retired in January after 25 years of service.

Whitlock is a seasoned leader, an architectural historian and experienced in non-profit management. She will be moving from Chicago, where she worked most recently at the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, an international funder and public programming institution in the field of architecture. As the program officer at the Graham Foundation, she directed all grantmaking operations and strategy and she served as senior management.

A selection committee composed of Bosco-Milligan board members and Architectural Heritage Center<http://visitahc.org/> staff unanimously nominated Whitlock for the board's approval after a nationwide search. She will begin work in early August.
