deschutescartoonJoin the Des Chutes Historical Museum and the Oregon Encyclopedia for the start of History Pub 2013 at McMenamins Old St Francis School.  

January 29, hear Gus Frederick and The Extraordinary Life of Homer C. Davenport. Doors open at 6pm, program begins at 7pm.  

History Pub is presented by the Des Chutes Historical Museum, the Oregon Encyclopedia and McMenamins Old St. Francis School and takes place on the last Tuesday of each month, January through November, in Father Luke’s Room at McMenamins Old St Francis. The 2013 History Pub in Bend is supported by a generous grant from the Deschutes Cultural Coalition.  

“History Pub is a wonderful, free connection with history each month, just now entering its third year. We’re grateful to have grant support from the Deschutes Cultural Coalition, part of the Oregon Cultural Trust. These dollars enable us to keep History Pub free to all ages,” said Des Chutes Historical Museum Executive Director Kelly Cannon-Miller.  

Gus Frederick will introduce Central Oregon to our State’s first media superstar, Homer C. Davenport, born and raised in Silverton, one of the most creative and successful artists Oregon has ever produced. Yet, few outside his hometown are even aware of the impact the political cartoons of this self-described “country boy” had on society, in the transition between those eras known as The Gilded Age and The Progressive Era.
