Oregon Pioneers Oral History Collection, 1975-1978

Historical Note:

The Oregon Pioneers oral histories were conducted almost entirely during the summer of 1975 by Oregon State University students enrolled in J 407A - "Seminar: An Oral/Written History of Oregon Pioneers," offered by the Journalism Department. The interviews were used to prepare a publication, Pioneers!, (ca. 1978) published by the Journalism Department and the Summer Term Office that included articles on pioneers, the Yaquina Bay Life Saving Station, Philomath College, the Siletz Indians, Fort Hoskins, the Willamette River, regional railroads, Eddyville, and Chautauqua events in the area.
