Coming to Corvallis in 1991, Rebecca Landis began her work in operating farmers’ markets in 1995. That same year she also started free-lance writing and editing for the Oregon Stater and other campus organizations. In addition to journalism, Landis has worked in public policy and academia. Most of her "Stater" contributions were historical writing. They include Freedom Lost, the first attempt to document the life-altering effects of World War II internment on students of Japanese ancestry enrolled at OSC in the 1941-42 academic year. Many of these students were later granted honorary degrees at OSU commencement in 2008. Landis currently serves as market director for Corvallis-Albany Farmers’ Markets.
