Provisional Government Legislators and Staff

1845 Special Session: August 5-20

This was the first session after the ratification of the organic laws of the provisional government and after the inauguration of the provisional governor, George Abernethy. It was held in Oregon City.

Mr. W. H. Gray was elected speaker on August 5, but as this session was held to be only a continuation of the session of July of the same year, Mr. McCarver, the speaker at that session, claimed the right to preside and, after a time, was allowed to assume the duties of the office.

George Abernethy, the first governor of Oregon, submitted a message to this legislative committee or assembly, but the Governor's message was not preserved.
