I am an Oregon Heritage Fellow this year and in the process of researching a project on the historic transformation of the Waldo Hills landscape in the eastern Willamette Valley. My study will be presented at the upcoming Rendezvous 2009 history conference commemorating Oregon's 150th anniversary of statehood. Some key diaries of early settlers in Waldo Hills, important to my research, are held at the OHS library, which is currently closed.
What should happen to these historic documents donated to the library with the understanding that they will be available to researchers? If funding is not continued, could the OHS archives be sent to Oregon university archives that can maintain this historic information and ensure they will be available to researchers?
