Join Doug Kenck-Crispen, Portland public historian as he tells us the stories of Portland's tawdry underbelly. Long before Portland was green and full of hipsters and bicycles, it was wild west frontier town. Discover the people Oregon may prefer to forget about, but without whom we wouldn't be what we are today.
Doug's lecture style is fun, hip, and geared to people who are curious about their city and like to have a good time. Doug makes history fun because Portland history is for all of Portland. Here is a video clip that gives you an idea of what to expect with Doug, who presents every third Tuesday at The Jack London. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBeHYMP-tPg&feature=player_embedded
