International Expositions: Oregon Showcases its Strengths

 

The strength and resourcefulness of Oregon's people also figured prominently in the expositions. In particular, the state proudly submitted examples of the academic and artistic talent of its youth. In the Lewis and Clark Exposition of 1905 these included samples from all grade levels in subjects such as history, language, arithmetic, geography, and creative writing. They often featured sketches, maps, diagrams, and other illustrations produced by students. A few schools submitted photographs showing students using the most up-to-date academic or physical education drills.
