CORVALLIS, Ore. -- What’s in and what’s out? That's the question facing the scholars and writers compiling the Oregon Encyclopedia of History and Culture.
William Lang, a Portland State University professor and editor-in-chief of the project, will speak at Oregon State University on the topic of “What Beavers, Ducks, Bart Simpson and Leroy Vinnegar Have in Common, or How to Make a State Encyclopedia of Oregon.”
The free public lecture begins at 4 p.m. in Memorial Union Room 208 on Monday, April 27.
Lang will try to answer the question of how the group will go about creating an Oregon encyclopedia.
What do you think belongs in an Encyclopedia of Oregon?
