North Pacific College, Class of 1926

[Warning: genealogist Google crawl enabler alert!]
We had the opportunity today to scan the photograph of the class of 1926 from the North Pacific College of Oregon, Schools of Dentistry and Pharmacy--just one of the many treasures safeguarded lo these many years in The Vault down at the OHSU School of Dentistry. The composite includes 105 unidentified graduates from the group of 122--a typical class size for the busy institution on East Sixth and Oregon streets in downtown Portland. Despite all NPC's later talk about being a co-ed college, you'll note that all of these graduates are men.

A 1937 alumni directory lists towns for all the practicing graduates. Not surprisingly, 41 were in Oregon. Washington State was the winner with 45 NPC-trained dentists. We sent 16 to British Columbia, supplied four each to California and Montana, provided two to Utah, and had lone representatives in Colorado, Idaho, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Alaska, and Florida. Dean Herbert Miller probably didn't make it to alumni reunions as far as Florida, but he was undoubtedly proud of his school's widely sown seeds.
