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.
