Lake Oswego Vignettes
Illiterate Cows to College-Educated Cabbage
$20 Available at the City Store and at the Lake Oswego Preservation Society

For the first time in 54 years, a Lake Oswego resident has written a published history of the town. With tales of a mayor who knew the town’s cows by name and a singing pig drunk on moonshine, Colver captures the quirky anecdotes of Lake Oswego’s past. In the twentieth century, visionary real estate developers touted Oregon’s Lake Oswego as an ideal place to “live where you play,” a reputation the city maintains today. But this playful paradise is a far cry from the small town developed by iron company entrepreneurs in the nineteenth century. Colver chronicles the transition from gritty to pretty by recounting the people and events that shaped Lake Oswego. From bathing suit bans to a robot circus, enjoy the legacy of unusual facts, some recently discovered, that inspired Lake Oswego Vignettes.

All proceeds from the sale of the book benefit the Lake Oswego Preservation Society, a non-profit corporation whose mission is to support Lake Oswego’s historic fabric through advocacy and education.

In Their Own Words: A Collection of Reminiscences About Early Lake Oswego

$35  - Available at the City Store or the Library.

In the mid-1970s, Lake Oswego Public Library staff and volunteers began collecting oral histories from Lake Oswego “old-timers”. Armed with little more than a typewriter, staff and volunteers worked diligently to transform these collected oral histories into the book In Their Own Words, which describes in vivid detail life in early Lake Oswego.

The Library has updated this classic work. The new hardbound edition features photographs from the Lake Oswego Historic Photographs database, a CD of some of the interviews, and an index.
