I've been left alone here to man the fort while the rest of our small but happy band has headed off for another round of training on Archivist's Toolkit, and I've been soothing my overloaded brain by sleeving some rather uninteresting photographs. (I'll spare you those.) A bout of monotony usually helps me transition between intellectually demanding writing assignments.
So, in an effort to salute others in our community who have likewise been expending their brain power to highlight the medical men and women of Oregon, I hereby give notice of the recent publication of the following articles in the Oregon Encyclopedia:
Barry, John. Clarence V. Hodges (1914-2001)
Gaines, Barbara. Grace Phelps (1871-1952)
Gaines, Barbara. Elnora Thomson (1873-1957)
Stay tuned for another from Gaines, plus forthcoming articles on Aaron Lerner and Thomas Fitzpatrick by Lee Lewis Husk and on Robert S. Dow by Casey Bush.
If you haven't already read about Esther Pohl Lovejoy, Marie Equi, Bethenia Owens-Adair, Lena Kenin, and John Kitzhaber, then get on over to the OE and check 'em out.
Who isn't there who should be? Let them know, and suggest an author--or offer to write one yourself!
