Memorial Service for Thomas Vaughan
On December 6, 2013, we lost a dear friend to the Oregon Historical Society, Thomas Vaughan. Executive Director to the Society for over three decades, Tom’s love for history and for Oregon was unmatched. In 1989, Tom was unanimously designated as Oregon’s Historian Laureate, and stayed involved with the Society until his passing. A public memorial for Tom is scheduled for Thursday, March 13 at 4 p.m. at the First Congregational Church (1126 SW Park Avenue, Portland). A reception will immediately follow the service at the Oregon Historical Society.
