Friday Feature: Oregon Archives Crawl 2012

Once upon a time history-loving folks crawled around Portland talking to archivists. These archivists had brought information goodies from far and wide to share with the masses. Nope, this no fairy tale!

Oregon Archives Crawl 2012

Last weekend several SCARC staff and student workers journeyed to the far north end of our state (Portland) to join other culture and historic organizations. To quote the Crawl website, there were “over 25 archives and heritage organizations in getting in touch with history and having fun doing it!” There were four host locations: Portland Archives and Records Center, Portland State University LibraryMultnomah County Central Library and the Oregon Historical Society. And at each site visitors met with “archivists, historians and other representatives from organizations that devote their time to preserving the past so that it will be available for you and future generations to use.”
