Oregon And Migration, Constant Companions

The story of Oregon from before statehood is a story of migration: people moving in, historic residents being forced out, other people being shut out. 

Scholars, historians, and just folks will discuss migration this week at the Oregon Migrations Symposium in Eugene. 

Eliza Canty-Jones edits the Oregon Historical Quarterly; Bob Bussel is a professor at the University of Oregon.  They organized the conference and give us a preview of the issues discussed.
