George Vogt welcomes PSU community to the Lincoln Exhibit at Oregon Historical Society

First annual PSU day at OHS a success!

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.

My husband and I had a great time and were facinated by how many links Abraham Lincoln had to Oregon.

It looks like fun. We need to see more events like this for the family and for our hard-working students. Kudos to PSU and OHS!
