Among the topics to be covered are the colleges vision for a Quaker school, the presidencies of Levi Pennington (1911-1941) and Emmett Gulley (1941-1947) and how the college survived during its early period.
Cost for lunch is $8.50 and must be paid at the door. Reservations, which can be made by calling Judy Woolsey at 503-538-7314, are required.
The next installment of the series, in which David LeShana will cover the period between 1969 and 1982, is scheduled for March 14.
The series will conclude May 9, with reflections on the 1980s and 1990s from Barry Hubbell.
