"The History of Oregon in 8 Maps" - Jim Walker
Inspirational Moment - Alec Murphy
The Round Table is Eugene's oldest civic club with a unique tradition of members giving talks about topics on a wide range of interest.
The Round Table Club of Eugene, Oregon was founded on November 20, 1912 for "the social and intellectual enjoyment of its members." Implicitly, the Club was also intended to serve as a town-gown organization, providing a forum in which citizens and members of the University of Oregon could share friendship and the opportunity for intellectual growth.

From the Author - February 2022 will be the 163rd year of Oregon’s statehood. I like to interrogate historic maps, and the cartographic history of Oregon’s borders is very interesting to me. But maps also illustrate non-geographic information about how explorers, diplomats, legislators, and pioneer emigrants understood the geopolitical, social, and cultural context of this place even before Oregon was given its name and before its borders were determined.
So, for February, I’m going to start 515 years ago and talk on “The History of Oregon in 8 Maps.”
