Portland newspaper features upcoming talk

The science writer for The Oregonian in Portland featured our talk in the April 26 edition in a short blurb under "Science News and Events."

Historian to discuss Oregon doctors after 1906 quake

Michael Helquist, an historian, will speak on "K.A.J. MacKenzie, Marie Equi and the Oregon Doctor Train" at 12:15 p.m. May 12 in the Old Library Auditorium at Oregon Health & Science University.

Helquist will discuss how a group of 40 doctors and nurses went to San Francisco to help in relief efforts two days after the 1906 earthquake. He is writing a biography of Dr. Marie Equi, a graduate of Oregon's medical school and a radical activist.

The lecture, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the OHSU History of Medicine Society.
