Beaver brand fancy evaporated Oregon prunes

This 1909 trademark exhibit is one of 174 displayed in the Web exhibit "Sold in Oregon: Historical Oregon Trademarks."

The Lobby


The Archives uses selected records, photographs, and other media from its holdings to create exhibits displayed in the exhibit gallery and waiting room adjacent to the lobby as well as on the Web. These exhibits highlight interesting records and help to interpret trends and events in Oregon's social, political, cultural, and economic history. The exhibits mounted in the gallery
and waiting room change periodically and include traveling exhibits from other institutions from time-to-time. The exhibits mounted on the Web often include more information and images and remain on the Web for use after the gallery exhibit is changed. Examples of the exhibits include:
