The Election is 52 days away. The third election this year for those of us in my area. I had agreed to do another exhibit of political memorabilia at my university, WOU, for the fall.
The main party of the display not pictured centers around candidates from Western Oregon University. There were some surprises in researching for this display. WOU has two U.S. Senators associated with it. Maurine Neuberger and George W. McBride. I thought it was cool to find out that George McBride was the first native Oregonian to serve in the U.S. Senate. A PM in the Canadian Parliament, and a former Alaskan State Senator also were uncovered.
There were many candidates for local office in Monmouth and Polk County too. If you get the chance to visit the WOU Library; go have yourself a look.
