Friends of History at Portland State University presents three new and exciting free programs during the Fall 2009 school season
Wednesday, October 14, 2009 - 7:00pm

The PSU Friends of History is responding to the many requests of its members and regular attendees to enhance their usual elucidating and cutting-edge programming, with a new and refreshing focus on historical events, places and people outside of the American Civil War. The 2009-2010 season will reflect this change with a meeting each month starting in October when the FOH program season officially begins.

Wednesday, October 14, 2009 starting at 7pm: the Friends of History presents "The Oregon Enclyclopedia Project, Oregon History and the December 2009 deadline." The Oregon Encyclopedia is a partnership of Portland State University, the Oregon Council of Teachers of English, and the Oregon Historical Society, and over the past two years has been assembling a comprehensive and authoritative compendium of information about the Oregon's history and culture. The Encyclopedia is slated for completion in December 2009, the year of Oregon's state sesquicentennial...if you haven't made your comtribution to the OEP, time is running out. Find out more about the historical contributions to the project , or bring your submissions or questions to this fact-filled program moderated by PSU History Professor William Lang, who is one of the Oregon Enclyclopedia Project's Editors-in-Chief.
