Alumni and Friends of the History Department

Welcome! We’re always glad to be in touch with the many friends of the Oregon History Department. We hope you’ll explore these pages to find out more about what we’ve been up to lately. You’ll find news about new courses, current versions of old favorites, announcements of department lectures and events, and information about our distinguished faculty’s research and publications. Our extended community is broad. Whether you’re a History major who’s graduated, a former graduate student, or a friend of the department, we hope you’ll keep in touch. Please send your news to me at and we’ll begin building an alumni news page for our website.

On behalf of my colleagues, I’d like to emphasize how grateful we all are for the generous support that our friends and alumni provide. Your contributions make it possible for us to continue doing the things you know us for. They undergraduate scholarships and awards, public lectures, research by graduate students (new historians in the making), recruiting and retaining a dynamic faculty, and much more. If you’d like to learn more about how you can help, please visit our “Supporting the department” page.
