Historical Note

Born in St. Louis, Missouri on July 11, 1930, Nancie Peacocke Fadeley was an Oregon State Representative from 1971 to 1981. In 1973, she chaired the House Environment and Land Use Committee, the House committee that reported out SB 100, Oregon’s pioneering, statewide land use planning legislation. The passage of SB 100 prompted the formation of 1000 Friends of Oregon, a watchdog organization committed to the defense of, and advocacy for, the state’s land use program.

In 1975, 1977, and 1979, Fadeley served as chair of the House Environment and Energy Committee. She also championed women’s rights legislation and spearheaded the bill signed by Governor Robert Straub which established displaced homemaker programs in Oregon, programs that helped widowed or divorced women develop skills to enter the workforce. Later she became a charter member and a national board member of the Older Women’s League (OWL), a grass roots organization that advocates for women as they age. After her service in the Oregon Legislative Assembly, Fadeley began a career at the University of Oregon where she was assistant vice provost. The mother of two children, Fadeley is now a freelance journalist who writes about Oregon history, environmental issues, and concerns of older women.
