Historical NoteReturn to Top

From its founding in 1898, the Oregon Historical Society has collected diaries and reminiscences of Oregon pioneers, early settlers, and other residents of the state. At one time the Society gathered these materials into a single collection, regardless of provenance, often separating items from other collections. The Society discontinued this process around 1994, and now catalogs such items individually or in conjunction with the collections to which they belong.
