The Oregon Historical Society rolled out the red carpet for 150 PSU students and staff on March 4 as "PSU DAY AT OHS" celebrated the close bonds between the two downtown Portland institutions. OHS director George Vogt welcomed the guests who were treated to a free catered lunch, a visit from "President Lincoln"(as performed by playwright Stephen Holgate) , lectures by Lincoln experts Dick Etulain and Elliott Trommald, a guided tour of the current Lincoln exhibit, and a sing along with banjo-strumming "Illinois Doug" Tracey as he played an 1860s campaign song: "Lincoln and Liberty,too." This project was a joint effort of OHS, the non-profit Friends of History at PSU and the Oregon Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.
First annual PSU day at OHS a success!
