Between the Park Blocks and City Hall: The Portland State Strike of 1970

Portland State Student Strike of 1970

A new exhibit will debut October 3, 2015 during the Oregon Archives Month Celebration event that is happening at the City of Portland Archives & Records Center, 11 AM – 3 PM. 

The exhibit is a collaboration between the Portland Archives, the PSU Special Collections and Archives, and the students of the PSU Honors College seminar “Activism in the Archives: the 1970 PSU Strike.”  The exhibit uses archival documents and photos from both collections and takes place in two locations.

Students also created a self-guided walking tour that highlights where some of the events occurred during the Strike.  Copies of the tour can be picked up at either exhibit location and online.

On Saturday, October 3rd get a guided tour with one of the students starting at 12:30, 1:30 and 2:30. Meet your guide at our display on the 5th floor of the Student Academic and Recreation building.

You can see the exhibits at these two locations:
