Thanks to local and state funding, as well as generous support from our members, local foundations and corporations, our OHS Board, and estate gifts, our financial picture is strong. These gifts also allowed us to open our new permanent exhibit, Oregon Voices: Change and Challenge in Modern Oregon History. This exhibit has received glowing reviews from our visitors, as did three complimentary rotating exhibits focused on mid-century life in Oregon: The Architecture of Pietro Belluschi, Culture Captured: The Photography of Marian Wood Kolisch, and The Mightiest Wind: The 1962 Columbus Day Storm. These exhibits—and increased school tours for Oregon students— helped to grow 2012 attendance 31% above 2011. 2012 also saw a dramatic increase in the number of programs, lectures, and classes offered to our members and the public. From the popular genealogy workshops hosted by our research library to book signings with state and national figures to historical film premieres to events highlighting the centennial of woman suffrage in Oregon, it was clear that OHS offered something for everyone. The Oregon Historical Quarterly also continued to do what it has done for over a century—provide fascinating and provocative articles on a wide variety of subjects. The Mark O. Hatfield Distinguished Historians Forum, now in its 15th year, has regained its status as one of Oregon’s premier lecture series. Increased financial stability. High quality exhibits and programs. More visitors coming in our doors. Greater visibility around the state. It took a lot of hard work from our staff, board, and volunteers to make it all happen, and we are very grateful for the continued support and encouragement from you—our members. There’s an old saying that the surest way to crush your laurels is to sit on them, so we want to assure you that we are taking full advantage of all we accomplished in 2012. We are very encouraged by the fact that 2013 is well on its way to surpassing last year’s progress. We hope to see you very soon. Sincerely, Kerry Tymchuk Executive Director Bill Failing President, Board of Directors 4 Volunteers Catherine Adinolfi Kirsten Allen Emily Antonelli Susan Atkin Joanne Baker Carl Beers Lynda Bell Thomas Bell James Blackaby Barbara Blubaugh Brina Bolanz Cindy Boungnarath In 2012, volunteers logged over 8,770 hours and averaged 77.6 hours each of service to OHS.
