Join Oregon Experience and more than 25 other organizations for the 3rd Annual Oregon Archives Crawl this Saturday, October 6, 10am to 3pm.
It’s a great opportunity to get to know the wonderful archival and heritage organizations in the state; and the dedicated archivists and historians who devote their time to preserving the past for generations to come. Many of the organization will have interactive opportunities including learning ways to preserve and research your own family history.
Oregon Experience will be based at the Multnomah County Central Library, but the Crawl will also take you to the City of Portland Archives & Records Center, Portland State University Library and the Oregon Historical Society. This year’s theme is Celebrating Women, Celebrating Archives and honors the 100th anniversary of Oregon women winning the right to vote.
The Crawl will showcase the contributions and impact women have had on Oregon politics, health, education and so much more. We’ll be showing a clip of our newest show, The Suffragists, airing November 5 at 9pm as well as other clips from past programs.
We certainly couldn’t produce any of our shows without carefully preserved film, photographs and artifacts of the past. We welcome all new story ideas, too, so come and tell us a few of your own!
You can pick up your free “passport” that lists all the organizations participating at any of the four host locations. Visit all four locations and you can be entered into a prize drawing announced at the After Party at Al’s Den at McMenamins Crystal Hotel.
Stop by and say hello at the Archives Crawl this Saturday. Looking forward to meeting you!
