Eminent Oregonians: Three Who Matter @ Lakeside Center, Mennonite Village | Albany | Oregon | United States

Three well-known Oregon authors will describe three eminent Oregonians who were often at odds with their moments in history. Acclaimed journalist R. Gregory Nokes gives us the abolitionist Jesse Applegate. Renowned author Jane Kirkpatrick gives us the life of the suffragist, newspaper publisher and novelist Abigail Scott Duniway; and Oregon columnist and publisher Steve Forrester gives us Richard Neuberger, whose election to the U.S. Senate changed Oregon and national politics. Based largely on primary sources, these authors present compelling, three-dimensional views of adventurous, consequential and sometimes heart-breaking lives. This presentation is sponsored by the Linn County Historical Society and is free to the public.
