Have some history for Lunch!

Join us for some lunchtime viewings about campus history and famous alums!

To honor Oregon Archives Month, OSU Special Collections and Archives have organized the following film showings:

Thursday 13th, noon–1:00pm (Willamette East Room – 3rd Floor of Valley Library)

OSU films from the 1960-70s: Three films produced at OSU from 1968 to 1974 will offer a glimpse of campus and student life during an intense period of cultural change in American life. The differing moods between these films reveal this change. Two of the films, “Nuthin’ Comes Easy” and “Gotta Start Somewhere” were created to attract minority students to study pharmacy and media services at OSU. The third, “The Possible Dream,” celebrates OSU in its centennial year in 1968. Highlights include a funky re-creation of an average student party ca. early 1970s.

Wednesday 19th, noon–1:00pm (Willamette East Room – 3rd Floor of Valley Library)

OPB “Oregon Experience” documentary on Linus Pauling: This recent production by Oregon Public Broadcasting will enlighten viewers about the life and times of native Oregonian and alumnus Linus Pauling. Highlights include a look at Pauling’s childhood in Portland, where he rowed carboys of chemicals across the Willamette River to conduct chemistry experiments at home! OSU luminaries such as Cliff Mead, Chris Petersen, and Mina Carson, are featured in this fascinating film.
