Today a fly fishing friend of mine who volunteered at the OHS museum and research library from 1979 to 2000 clued me in that the research library may be shut down for lack of funding. That would be a disaster.
Please visit the petition site to weigh in on the matter, and then let everyone you know about the opportunity to keep Oregon history available.
This resource must remain accessible to keep Oregon history alive. One of the first steps to obliterating a culture or a people is to cut them off from their history. We can’t have that happening in Oregon. Or anywhere else, for that matter.
Anyone else have any ideas on how to get the word around? Please comment here and I’ll do my share to spread the word.
As of tonight, only 20 people had signed the online petition. Surely more of us must care.
