Oregon Voices examines some of the important people, events, and ideas that have shaped the state in the modern era, from the end of World War II to the present. It features the people of Oregon, from Native Americans, who have lived here since time immemorial, to recent arrivals. It looks at Oregonians who have fought for and against social change. And it explores the land-how people have used it and how they have worked to save it.

“Oregon is an inspiration.
Whether you come to it, or
are born to it, you become
entranced by our state's
beauty, the opportunity
she affords, and the
independent spirit
of her citizens.”

- governor tom mccall, 1973
