The High Desert Muse: C.E.S. Wood and Eastern Oregon

The History Pub at McMenamins invites you  to join Laurence Cotton and Tim Barnes for observations and insights into one of Oregon’s most colorful and significant citizens — Charles Erskine Scott (C.E.S.) Wood (1852–1944). Soldier, attorney, poet, essayist, artist and art patron, public speaker and raconteur, philosophical anarchist and cultural figure, C.E.S. Wood left a profound, enlightening, and controversial legacy on Portland, OR, and the West Coast. Wood’s early formative—and continuing lifelong–experiences in the Oregon desert had a lasting impact on his writings, his artwork, even his personal philosophy.  Enjoy libations and food in Father Luke’s Room.  Doors open at 5:30, program begins at 7pm.
