Exchange Exemplar: "Reporting The Oregon Story"
"For heaven's sake, don't come here to live" may be the enduring quote of the governorship of Oregon's Tom McCall. But the 60s, 70s, and early 80s were about setting an Oregon-style environmental ethic that other states moved to emulate.
McCall was the governor for much of that time, but there were also notable accomplishments when McCall rival Bob Straub took over the office.
Floyd McKay covered the state capitol during that period, and he shared his perspective in the book Reporting the Oregon Story: How Activists and Visionaries Transformed a State. Floyd Joined us in 2016, and we return to the interview here.
