Rare Ephemera of Oregon History


Hermiston, Oregon: 1906. Stapled Card Covers. Near Fine. Small stapled booklet, 9" x 3.75", in green wrappers. 60 pp.; advertising and list of U.S. Reclamation Engineers on recto and verso of covers. Laid in is a triple-folded map of the Umatilla Project, Oregon, with approximate external size of 10.75" x 8" which shows the land near Umatilla on the Columbia River which will be "covered by open canals and inverted siphons'. Condition: map - Fine; booklet - upper portion beginning to detach from card covers, Else Fine: clean and unmarked.

The Umatilla Irrigation Project was, in the early years of the 20th century, a controversial concept. It remains so today, and this booklet represents primary source material.

The text lists the Officers and Directors of the Association, its Articles of Incorporation; advertisements for local businesses, and background material outlining the significance and arguments in favour of the project. Scarce, especially with map present. Our research and inquiries with colleagues south of the border failed to disclose any evidence of a reprint. [Not in Smith, or Smith Supplement, Howes, Larned, Decker, or Streeter Vol. 6.]
