A domaine drouhin oregon Dundee, Oregon Burgundy négociant Robert Drouhin has been involved with Oregon pinot noir almost from the outset—albeit unintentionally. Several Drouhin wines were among the pinots bested by The Eyrie Vineyards’ 1975 South Block Reserve when the latter was entered in a Paris tasting organized by GaultMillau magazine in 1979. When Drouhin

CHAPTER X X I OREGON The treaty of peace which terminated the Revolution fixed the boundary between the United States and Canada east of the Mississippi River. By the purchase of Louisiana with its indefi- nite boundaries, in 1803, the United States acquired whatever claims Prance might have to territory lying west of the Missis- sippi; and by the Florida treaty of 1819 Spain ceded to the United States all her claims to territory lying west of Louisiana and north of the forty-second parallel of north latitude. In general terms, all this was clear enough

22 Underground in Oregon In which the Brigade licks its wounds and debuts “The Gentleman Bank Robber” The collective decided that it was time to get out of the city. John and Therese left first. Initially just posing as a couple, they had quickly become one in actuality.The partners crossed over to coastal Route 101 and drove south until they arrived in Coos Bay, Oregon, a sleepy town beginning to awaken for the summer tourist sea- son. The couple decided that they’d spent as much as they could afford to on gas and moved no further. Rita stayed on a little longer

202 11 TO OREGON (FOR INDUSTRY) U PON ARRIVING IN PORTLAND IN MID-JULY 1867, Carleton Watkins almost immediately hiked up the Scappoose, the steep hills that rise a thousand feet behind Portland. Watkins was up here as a kind of research trip, knowing that the landscape would provide a guide to the picture making he had come here to do. He saw the city, built tight against the west bank of the Willamette River. About 6,800 people lived down there. That wasn’t much—San Francisco was now home to almost 150,000 peo- ple—but Portland was growing 20 percent a year

TWO Farming and Politics: Oregon, 1835- 1857 Eight years after Californians held the Pacific Coast's first state constitu- tional convention, their Oregon neighbors followed suit. Despite the proximity of the two states, their people, histories, and politics contrasted sharply. At the time of statehood, Oregonians looked back on a genera- tion of relatively slow, incremental American settlement, initiated by Methodist missionaries in the 1830s and then recast in the 1840s by suc- ceeding waves of farming families from the Ohio and Mississippi River valleys

EIGHT Crisis and Renewal: Oregon, 1857-1890 To many visitors in the 1860s, 1870s, and 1880s Oregon was an odd place. For those who came through California, the border crossing seemed to mark a passage to a world incomparable to the one immor- talized by Lord Bryce—and lamented by Charles Botts. In contrast to the enterprise and speculation, the political passion and cultural energy, the vast (and vulgar) displays of wealth alongside poverty and depriva- tion that impressed and repulsed observers of California scenes, life in Oregon seemed staid to a fault

FIVE A Liberal Commonwealth: Oregon, 1857 Eight years after the California convention adjourned, a very different group of men set about the task of constitution writing in Oregon. T h e distinctions between the two groups were striking. Those who sat in the Oregon convention had decided—as many as fifteen years before—to make this isolated country their families' home. They emigrated to Oregon knowing that they were in all likelihood separating themselves permanently from relatives, friends, and community. By the same token, their emigration had

133 The Pacifi c Northwest had a substantial population of transients for much of the twentieth century, people who were on the move through Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and Northern Cali- fornia. They harvested seasonal crops or worked in logging camps in an era when the cutting and transporting of the North- west’s vast timber resources required largely manual labor. They were people who for whatever reasons, economic or oth- erwise, had abandoned aspirations to stable lives in one place with jobs and families. They rode the rails, worked, did or did ch a
