Re: “The Dead Freeway Society

Thanks for the clarification, Val (Valb) -- you bring up some important distinctions.

Re: “It's History

Thank you, Sarah, for this article.

There is a fascinating sub-text going on here regarding the dispersal and potential diffusion of the OHS' archival collections. I am researching an assertion that the OHS Board is keen to calve-off the photographs and digital images in the collection for themselves and sell-off the remainder of the collection (hopefully to a state institution).

As a current OHS member, I have requested copies of their meeting minutes (in accordance with OR Revised Statutes) so that we all may learn more about how the Board members made the decisions that they made, without appealing to the passion and expertise of us OHS members and others in the state and regional archives, library, history, geneaology, preservation, and other fields. I am more than happy to make this information available to you and anyone else.

Restricted access to the "guts" of Oregon's history is a travesty on par with lost jobs and de-funded social programs, because it will have negative reverberations for years and decades to come.
