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

state sesquicentennial...if you haven't made your comtribution to the OEP, time
