Historical Note

Established by Oregon Agricultural College and Professor John Horner in 1925, the Museum of the Oregon Country was a place where people could "see the world" without leaving Corvallis, Oregon. It was renamed the John B. Horner Museum of the Oregon Country in 1936, three years after he died, and became commonly known as the Horner Museum. The museum housed an eclectic mix of artifacts, photographs, and archival materials; supported an active oral history program from the mid 1970s through the early 1990s; and was the repository for many - perhaps most - of the oral history projects conducted by Oregon State University faculty, students, and departments during that time. Jennifer A. Lee was the Horner Museum staff member that worked most closely with the oral history program, sometimes in collaboration with her husband, Forestry professor Royal G. Jackson.

The museum was located in various buildings on the Oregon State University campus, until it moved to its final campus location in Gill Coliseum in 1951. In 1995 the 60,000-artifact museum officially closed to the public due to statewide budget cutbacks resulting from the passage of Oregon Ballot Measure 5 (1990). Not long after, certain of the museum's records, including its vast oral history collection, were transferred to the Oregon State University Archives. Ten years later, in 2005, a final agreement for transfer of physical custody of the remainder of the museum's collections was signed between Oregon State University and the Benton County Historical Society. The society subsequently transferred the Horner Collection materials to their facility in Philomath, Oregon.

Content Description

The Horner Museum Oral History Collection (OH 10) is chiefly comprised of oral history materials either generated by the museum's staff or produced by OSU faculty, students and staff and subsequently accessioned into the museum's collections. The collection consists of audiocassettes and, in most cases, a coupled project file which might contain a preliminary or finalized transcript as well as research notes and photographs. The collection also contains administrative records including correspondence, interview abstracts, release forms, photographic negatives, cassette tape logs and various other work files.

In its present form, the Horner Museum Oral History Collection is significantly smaller than was once the case, as many of the dedicated oral history projects conducted by the museum have been removed and described as distinct collections of their own. A full itemization of these collections is contained in the Processing Information of this finding aid.

The extant contents of the Horner Museum Oral History Collection are comprised mostly of two sets of materials: interviews conducted by museum staff with regional figures of interest or in support of small thematic projects; and assorted interviews conducted by OSU students for class purposes. The collection also includes a significant cache of material produced by individuals - likely community members or OSU staff - not obviously associated with the museum or with a course of university study.

The interviews conducted by Horner staff tended to focus on one of four general areas: university history, regional community history, natural resource use in Oregon, and the experience of ethnic minorities in Oregon, with a particular focus on Native American history. Within these groupings, several small projects can be identified. Horner staff, for example, devoted time to interviewing alumni visiting campus for Golden Jubilee celebrations or Memorial Union Alumni Day. Likewise, concentrated efforts to document the experience of Corvallis-area doctors (Bahrs and Bell) and the local Jewish population (Goheen, Goldberg, Gordon, Loney, Orzech, Philipp and Schecter) are evident within the collection. Similar initiatives sought to capture the stories of the DeMoss Family Lyric Bards of Oregon, the Wallis Nash family, the Winema National Forest and Harney County's Welsh community. Though many interviewers contributed to the museum's efforts, the majority of the sessions actually produced by the organization were conducted by Jennifer A. Lee, sometimes in collaboration with her husband, Royal G. Jackson, an OSU Forestry faculty member.

Additional interviews with residents of Harney County (Cross, G. Crow, J. Crow, Dodson, Fine, Guinie, Heinz, Jenkins), conducted in 1979, address interactions between Paiute Native Americans and early white settlers in the Burns area, early 20th century life in Burns, and the construction of the Oregon Northwestern Railroad between Seneca and Burns. Several of these interviews were transcribed by staff and volunteers of the Harney County Library in 2006.

Interviews with several notable Oregon State faculty and administrators are held within the collection. Prominent among these names are: Alan B. Berg, Eva Blackwell, Walter B. Bollen, Fred Decker, John C. Garman, Delmer M. Goode, E.B. Lemon, Harriet Moore, Miriam Orzech, Dan W. Poling, T.J. Starker, Betty Lynd Thompson and Chih H. Wang.

The student projects held in this collection mostly appear to be the product of class assignments, often within the Department of Anthropology. Many student interviews were conducted with members of a given interviewer's family and, as such, tend to document the lives of Americans born in the early decades of the 1900s. Also included is a 1986 student project of some consequence - 16 interviewees - focusing on the local population of ethnic minorities. An additional student project, 1981's "Contemporary Lifestyles at Oregon State University," analyzed student attitudes toward controversial issues including recreational drug use and pre-marital sex.

Biographical and content notes have been included with each set of interviews as available. These notes are generally included in Series I with finding aid entries for specific sets of audiocassettes. In certain cases where a transcript or project file remains extant but an audiocassette does not, the biographical and content notes have been included in Series II. Likewise, though they are no longer relevant to internal SCARC processes, Horner Museum accession numbers have been retained as numerous documents within the collection refer to projects using these numbers and no other identifiers.

II:  Transcripts and Project Files, 1952-1992
6 boxes  ( 187 folders)

The contents of the files held in Series II vary from folder to folder but, generally speaking, may contain rough transcripts of interviews and research materials compiled in preparation for interviews. More specifically, folders often contain preliminary and finalized transcripts of interviews - the latter occasionally published as a monograph - completed interviewer comment sheets noting first impressions of a completed interview; interview logs describing general themes discussed at specified points within an interview; and research materials compiled in preparation for an interview, typically including clippings and handwritten notes. The folders also sometimes contain biographical information collected at a point following an interview, newspaper obituaries being the most common item of this sort. Photographs, slides and negatives of interviewees, usually taken by Horner Museum staff at the time and location of an interview, are also arranged into this series' folders as appropriate. More details about most of these interviews are available in Series I of this finding aid.

14 Contemporary Lifestyles at Oregon State University, 1981
A report titled "Contemporary Lifestyles at Oregon State University," authored by Brad Cantor, Bene Schleuniger and Julie Christoferson, was compiled and submitted in 1981 to fulfill the requirements of an unidentified OSU class. The report sought to use analysis of oral history interviews to identify specific subcultures within the OSU student population and "to explore the possibility that each [subculture] might possess conflicting values." In so doing, the study focused on student attitudes toward controversial issues of the day, including recreational drug use, cohabitation and pre-marital sex. The report consists largely of transcripts of interviews conducted with the study's nine participants, as categorized by the authors into three groups: "The Organics," "Middle of the Road" and "The Greeks."

III:  Administrative Records, 1973-1993
2 boxes  ( 16 folders)

A wide array of materials have been organized into the collection's Administrative Records series. Content held in this series includes card catalogs, interview abstracts, cataloging worksheets, accession files, progress reports, signed release forms and film negatives. The series also contains one box of "Assorted Project Files" which consist of notes, correspondence, research materials, forms and other items either collected or generated in support of the Horner Museum's oral history initiatives.

Description
Box
19 Card Catalogs, undated
The two card catalogs arranged into this series contain two different sets of information. One card catalog itemizes the names and accession numbers of individuals interviewed under the umbrella of the Horner Museum's oral history program. The other card catalog contains information concerning individuals of interest to the museum's program. These latter records include the names and contact information of potential interviewees as well as brief biographical abstracts and references to those who referred a given name to the museum's staff.
19 Abstracts, circa 1992
Series III contains a large volume of interview abstracts summarizing both the biography of a given interview subject as well as noteworthy points of discussion raised during their interview. Earlier iterations of the abstracts were either handwritten or typed onto index cards and paper scraps. The content was later compiled into a volume titled "Oral History Collection Abstracts, Horner Museum, 1978-1991," four rough copies of which are included in Series III.
19 Accession Sheets, circa 1988
Typewritten accession sheets documenting acquisition dates, provenance, interviewer and interviewee data, number of cassettes and locations within the Horner Museum remain extant for interviews 979-1-1 to 988-1-9.
19 Cataloging Worksheets and Progress Logs, 1986-1992
The Horner Museum used cataloging worksheets of their own design to record information about specific interviews as they worked their way through the museum's processing queue. These worksheets included data similar to that recorded in the collection's accession sheets as well as notes on transcription and permissions management, and overall project quality control. Many of the cataloging worksheets also include copies of the interview abstracts generated by the museum. The information captured on the item level in the cataloging worksheets was then transferred in spreadsheet form to progress logs, which tracked the conducting and finalizing of interviews from start to finish.
19 Signed Gift and Release Forms, 1975-1991
Signed permissions forms granting unrestricted use of a given interview are included for the vast majority of the subjects interviewed as part of the Horner Museum's program. A small portion of these forms contain restrictions either annotated on the form or appended on separate page. The forms are arranged by Horner Museum accession number.
19 Photographic Negatives, undated
Twelve photographic negatives of unidentified interviewees are arranged into this folder.

20 Assorted Project Files, 1980-1989
