School of Dentistry historical collections videos

I was delighted to see this OHSU-produced interview with our friend Dr. J. Henry Clarke. Dr. Clarke talks in detail about the Ernest D. Starr Memorial Museum of Dental Anomalies, which is displayed at the School of Dentistry.

Additional photographs of SOD's displays of their historical collections are in this montage:

HC&A has partnered with the School of Dentistry to preserve their historical materials. Extensive collections of artifacts, books and archival materials not displayed at the school can be consulted in HC&A.

Votes for Women exhibit at Multnomah County Library

Wednesday evening I attended the opening reception for the exhibit Votes for Women! The Oregon Story at the Multnomah County Library's Collins Gallery.

The exhibit is presented by Century of Action in celebration of 100 years of Oregon women's right to vote and advancing the understanding of women's citizenship in Oregon's history.

The exhibit draws on collections from many libraries, archives and museums in our area to represent the diversity of women's contributions to politics and civic life in Oregon. We are very proud to have one of our items, a political campaign card from Esther Pohl Lovejoy's papers, included in this exhibit.
