October Means... BEERVANA!


With the air turning crisp, our minds are on warm blankets, fall leaves… and, of course, delicious autumn craft ales! The OHS Museum Store is celebrating the season of Oktoberfest with a wide selection of items for the beer enthusiast in your family. Oregon Trail pint glasses and growlers are must-haves for local beer connoisseurs, and Portland Beer Stories is required reading. Show your pride for Oregon ales with a Beervana t-shirt, magnet, or keychain – also a great stocking stuffer if you want to get your holiday shopping done early!

The Gentleman of the Senate: Oregon’s Mark Hatfield
On sale in the Museum Store for $30


The Gentleman of the Senate: Oregon’s Mark Hatfield tells the story of the life and legacy of the most influential elected official in Oregon’s history. Through conversations with former staff members, Senate colleagues, and other figures in Oregon politics, The Gentleman of the Senate examines Mark Hatfield’s approach to leadership while outlining his remarkable record in office. Focusing on his years in the U.S. Senate, the film examines how his leadership approach served him well on big issues of the day, including the Vietnam War, healthcare, nuclear weapons, and human life issues like abortion and capital punishment. More than a history lesson, this film acts as a roadmap on how to lead with integrity, compassion, and consistency while holding strong to the values that guide you.
