The Othniel R. Chambers Papers document Chambers' graduate education at Ohio State University and his teaching and research as a faculty member at Oregon State College. They include lectures and related materials for radio presentations; class notes; and publications. Chambers earned his Ph.D. in psychology from Ohio State in 1926; he was professor and head of the Oregon State Psychology Department from 1929 until 1951.
The Jimmie Morris Papers reflect Morris' life-long interest in broadcasting, his decades of service to KOAC radio and television, and the broader evolution of the station itself. The collection is particularly strong in its documentation of the emergence of television as a tool for statewide education, a development that came about after much debate in the mid-1950s. An Oregon Agricultural College graduate, Morris was on the staff of KOAC from 1932-1963 and is the author of a history of the station, The Remembered Years..., published in 1972.
