The LWV of Clackamas County kickoff meeting will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 5:30 pm at the Oswego Pointe Club House.  Our speaker will be Dr. Stephen Beckham, lecturing on “Oregon’s Public Lands: Homesteaders to Malheur Refuge Occupiers.”  His talk will cover the creation of “Public Domain Lands” in Oregon, the numerous programs whereby the federal government attempted to get rid of these lands, the retention of lands for special purposes (Indian reservations, lighthouses, military forts, national forests, national parks, rights-of-way and other uses), and some of the problems and challenges facing federal land managers over the past century.

Dr. Beckham is the Pamplin Professor of History, Emeritus, Lewis & Clark College.  He is the recipient of the Asher Distinguished Teaching Award, American Historical Association: Oregon Professor of the Year” and other awards. We are thrilled that he will speak with us for he enjoys answering questions and comments.

The dinner cost is $15.00 and will include wine.  Reservations are required and should be sent to Sonja Kollias, either via email (vskollias@aol.com) or phone (503-636-2187).  Guests are welcome, so come and enjoy!
