Great Speaker Series Continues with Robert Hamm
13, 2016 at 1:00 pm
Robert Hamm returns to the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum on Saturday, February 13 to present "Becoming Oregon: From Expedition to Exposition" as part of the Museum's Great Speaker Series. Mr. Hamm was a popular speaker several years ago when he came to talk about the maps that made Oregon what it is today. This time he will be explaining how the Lewis and Clark "Corps of Discovery" had an influence on how the state of Oregon developed and what effect the east coast papers had on development of the wild west.
Robert started his teaching career in the Lake Oswego School District. After one year in the printing industry, he returned to the teaching profession, teaching English at Aloha High School in Beaverton and at West Linn High School.
In the late 1980s he moved with his family to Urbana, Illinois, where he was recruited to work for the National Council of Teachers of English. Although he loved his job there, he and his family missed Oregon and returned. He was appointed building administrator at West Linn High School and then spent 10 years as Director of Personnel for the West Linn-Wilsonville School District.
After retiring from the district, he was chosen to head up a new teacher-preparation program at the Oregon Campus of the University of Phoenix.
This program is sponsored by the TCPM's Daisy Fund and is free and open to all ages. For more information, call 503.842.4553.
Tillamook Coast History Alliance
In April, 2015, a group of Tillamook County museums formed the Tillamook Coast History Alliance to help promote our venues
to the rest of the state and beyond. We are now able to post events on a calendar on the site as well as give short descriptions of what our collections have to offer.
Pioneer Museum seeks Volunteers
The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum is accepting applications for volunteer work at the Pioneer Museum as well as at the Kilchis Point Interpretive Trails site in Bay City. Possible positions at the museum include front desk personnel, substitutes for the front desk, docents for tours, research, and typing and filing. Duties at the Kilchis site will be clearing trails, weeding the trailhead locations, and removing invasive plants.
“We do our best to match our volunteers to the tasks
that need to be done,” said Ruby Fry-Matson, the museum’s Volunteer
Coordinator. “We want everyone to have a positive experience and enjoy
the time spent with us. We treasure our volunteers and couldn’t run
this museum without them.”

appointment for an interview, contact Ruby at 503-842-4553 or
