This memorandum about the history of African American Neighborhoods in Portland consists of a series of documents, beginning with Mary C. Person's description of a number of audio-taped oral histories. Pages 2-9 of the document are a typed transcript of Otto Rutherford's history of the Portland branch of the NAACP, of which he was President 1951-1953, when the first Civil Rights legislation was passed in Oregon. The two researchers, Eric and Glenn Harper, also produced a survey for community use to gather information about the history of African American churches in the city, and a report as to how they allocated project time during the ten weeks of their research.
