2010 Oregon Archives Crawl

The Portland Area Archivists are at it again, this time with their inaugural Oregon Archives Crawl.

You’ve heard of Pub Crawls, but have you ever heard of an Archives Crawl?
Neither had we, so we created one!
Everyone is invited to join us for the first annual Oregon Archives Crawl this October in celebration of Oregon Archives Month.  Walk, bike, run, or crawl between four different downtown locations and learn what local archives have to offer researchers, students, genealogists, scholars, homeowners, history buffs, and the curious of any age. We have something for everyone, old and young, native Oregonian and visitor passing through, professional and novice.
The free and public event is slated for Saturday, October 2 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. And guess what? Karen and Ian have been working hard to put together a beautiful informational display about OHSU's Historical Collections and Archives.

Tell your friends! Bring your families! We'll share more (hopefully some pictures of our display) after the event
