Community project: Who are these women?

The Smithsonian has uploaded photos such as this one to Flickr, and has invited us to "assist in the identification" of these people. In this case, the woman is Ms. J.M. Deming, but she is otherwise not identified.

Library with Equi doc's closing?


A major resource for historical research about Marie Equi and other subjects of Oregon history is at risk of being placed outside of the public's reach. The Oregon Historical Society, with a building in downtown Portland, has laid off library staff and may close the doors to its research library. Fortunately, people have organized to demand access to the collection. This rally was held in front of the OHS building on March 13. Michael put his poster-making skills to work, attended the rally, and was one of many speakers who addressed the crowd from this soap box.
