Pioneer Women of Oregon

By Anne Shannon Monroe
(Author of "Singing in the Rain")

The development of no state in the West has a finer base in its pioneer women than has Oregon.. . . As are the roots, so will be the blossoms,—and Oregon's roots are of sturdy fibre and go deep in the virgin soil.. . . In the beginning, there was Sacajawea, the Indian woman who as guide, made the way to the coast through warring tribes possible for Lewis and Clark.. . . Later, there was Narcissa Whitman, the young bride of Marcus Whitman, the Presbyterian missionary about whose name war is still waged as to whether he did or did not save Oregon to the Union; but the heroism of whose wife, giving her life for the planting of Gospel teaching in the raw new West, is not disputed. . . Later still there were the mothers of two of America's most renowned poets, Edwin Markham and Joaquin Miller; the former a poet herself with many excellent contributions to her credit to be found in the old files of one of Oregon's earliest prints, the Spectator, published at Oregon City; the latter a sturdy pioneer mother, carrying on the business of education and character building among her children in a log cabin hewed out of the primitive Oregon forest. . . . And still later, when the suffrage movement began to stir the world, there were Abigail Scott Duniway, Dr. Mary Thompson and Dr. Owens-Adair, women who gave their years and energies to the long fight for votes; the two physicians being among the first women ever admitted to medical colleges anywhere in the world, and Dr. Owens-Adair being a pioneer in the movement for surgical treatment for all criminals and insane, and the mother of the first bill authorizing this treatment ever passed by any legislature.. . . Practical ends were not overlooked. Mrs. Lord, widow of an early Oregon governor, devoted years of study to flax, and the demonstration that the highest quality for linen-weaving could be grown, commercially, in Oregon—thus connecting her name forever with this industry in its infancy.. . . Other names stand equally high in Oregon's history; these only suggest the various avenues of progress in which her women have gone ahead, carrying banners.

Women of Oregon

By Marian Miller (Edith Knight Hill)
(Editorial and Feature Writer, "The Oregonian")

Dauntless as the courage of their mothers and grandmothers who crossed the plains in covered wagons, is the courage and faith of the present day women of Oregon, the women who are doing things, whether it be homemaking, office managing, law enforcing or achieving success in the arts, sciences, or in literature. In each center of population in every district of the great state, culture is a keynote. The women of Oregon have done much to establish this fact. Women's clubs, organized in small towns and villages, in logging camps and mountain and seashore communities, have been the means of starting libraries, social and recreational advantages which are of inspiring influence in the state.

Not many of the women of Oregon have struck out for individual honors, but thousands of them have stood firm for political and civic righteousness. Long years ago, Abigail Scott Duniway was known as a pioneer striving for the ballot for womankind. The service she rendered, with the help of those who worked with her in the cause, can not be overestimated. She was the type of pioneer Oregon woman, determined, intelligent, capable, untiring in her efforts. Certain similar traits are to be found in many of the women living now who have contributed to woman's work in Oregon.

Sarah A. Evans, past president of the Oregon Federation of Women's Clubs, a market inspector of Portland for many years, is another great character. Mrs. Frederick Eggert, who so ably piloted the destinies of the scholarship loan fund, is another.

The City Federation of Women's Clubs of Portland, recently had as its president, a young woman who is known as a "judge," an attorney of rare ability.

The landscape architectural work of Portland, the international rose test garden and many of the loveliest gardens of lovely Portland, are the work of a young professional woman, Florence Holmes Gerke.

The Good Samaritan Hospital, Portland, is a large and prosperous institution, managed by Emily Loveridge, capable, clever and good, an executive with a heart, as well as a wealth of professional ability.

In Eastern Oregon, there are bright women managing large wheat ranches and business concerns. In Southern Oregon, women head many of the largest enterprises. In legislative bodies, they have won renown. As heads of large schools, they have shown splendid leadership. In business, as realtors, office managers, and as heads of large stores, women are winning recognition.

The Oregon women have a way of doing things that bespeaks determination, courage, ability and love for their work. Above all, the women of Oregon are makers of homes. Early in the history of the Oregon country, schools and colleges were established and women were active in every enterprise of a cultural nature.

Pioneer Women of the West

By Sheba Hargreaves
(Author: "The Cabin at the Trail's End")

Breaking the westward trail for the covered wagon, strong-hearted women fared forth "across the plains" with their husbands in quest of homes on the Pacific Coast. The women who established these first homes were a self-effacing type, busy with household cares and the training of large families, but they carried "the torch of civilization" with them. They were women who must have a curtain at the cabin window, a puncheon floor scoured as clean as home-made soft soap and water could make it, and a low rocking chair by the evening fireside where little children gathered at their knees to lisp their bedtime prayers. Where they lived there must be a puncheon shelf for the Bible, Webster's Blue-backed Spelling Book and McGuffy's Reader. They seldom voiced their sufferings. They asked but little; if their children could have religious and educational advantages they followed their husbands meekly enough.

The crossing was hazardous. Two thousand miles in a summer with an ox team hitched to a springless wagon! This was the prospect ahead of a wife whose husband decided to "go west" in the 1840's. Oregon then was that vast stretch of country west of the Rocky Mountains, north to the Canadian border and south to the forty-second parallel. The country was unsettled except for the Hudson Bay Company's post at Vancouver and a few French-Canadian farmers on French Prairie who had settled down with their Indian wives when their term of service with the company was over.

The suffering of the crossing has been recounted over and over. The work of building homes in a wild new country where the family must depend almost entirely upon its own resources for the first hard years was bravely undergone. The woman's side of the great colonizing movement has never been greatly stressed, but in reality, at least an equal share of the subduing of the wilderness fell upon their capable shoulders. The law and order from which civilization springs on a frontier came with the silent, unassuming women with babies in their arms and little children clinging to their skirts. Government must be firmly established if women and children were to live in safety. School and churches must be maintained. The mental and moral welfare of the settlement must be attended to for the sake of the children. Women insisted on this. Women have ever been the civilizing influence.

At first there was a grim hand-to-hand struggle for food, clothing, and shelter, so the women could not give attention to the broadening of their mental horizons, but always the deepseated ambition in the hearts of the mothers was to smooth the path of their daughters, to provide for them more advantages than they had enjoyed.

The dawn of the age of machinery in the next generation brought about the gradual emancipation from the abject drudgery of the household. Spinning, weaving and soap-making were taken out of the home. The invention of the typewriter opened up undreamed-of avenues for the daughters of the family to earn a living. The seeds of ambition planted in the hearts of the daughters of sacrificing pioneer mothers bore fruit in the lives of the next two generations. They began blazing mental and spiritual frontiers.

With the entering of broader fields of labor, changes in the attitude of women toward their work took place. Agitation for equal suffrage was begun and carried on to victory in the West by a daughter of one of Oregon's earliest pioneers; Abigail Scott Duniway was a trail-blazer just as her mother had been before her. Volumes might be written about these heroic women who opened the professions, the arts and the sciences to their sisters. Dr. Owens-Adair and Dr. Mary Thompson took up the study of medicine and practiced in spite of almost unsurmountable obstacles. Mary A. Leonard demanded to be admitted to practice law at the Oregon bar and special legislation was enacted so that she might be admitted. The old idea that woman's only place was in the home, even after the occupations of the home had been lightened by machinery, still prevailed. The spirit that subdued the frontier must break down the opposition to women in the larger housekeeping which has to do with the affairs of the country.

It is fifty years or so too soon to tell the story of that pivotal generation of women who, while rearing their families, set their faces steadily to affairs outside the home. These, too, are the pioneer women to whom we must pay homage along with the subduers of the western frontier who were their mothers and grandmothers. They deserve veneration for their bravery. For so long as civilization shall carry on we will have these unassuming pioneers who will break down barriers and subdue other than actual frontiers, and women will do their part shoulder to shoulder with men just as they did in the 1840's when the West was transformed in less than seventy years into a great commonwealth.

The Last Frontier

By Lois Randolph

(Superintendent of New Mexico State Department of Education)

There is something romantic and appealing about frontier or pioneer life. The thrill of living next to nature and battling with her forces, and the wholesomeness of life in the wide spaces all have their appeal to the average man or woman. This frontier life develops a hardiness of character and staunchness of soul that has had much to do with America's miraculous and speedy ascent to her place among nations of the world.

The "49" gold rush caused the westward march of progress to leap almost from the Mississippi to the Pacific coast overnight, and in this leap the territory now included in our mountain states was almost overlooked. Hence, we find that America's last frontier, instead of being the Pacific seaboard, is rather on the high plateaus leading down from the Rockies toward our neighboring republic on the south.

This last frontier is slowly but steadily giving way before modern conditions, and we, who are a part of this colorful life, view this breaking up and crumbling of the old with mixed feelings. We rather regret that the picturesque Indian life is gradually disappearing, and we can not but sigh for the downfall of romantic and colorful Spanish life. We cling stubbornly to the sleepy little Spanish villages along the Rio Grande, and we hold the old Missions as beautiful proofs of man's ability and courage to dare the desert and savage foe in order to carry the Cross into all the dark corners of the world. All of this has its appeal to us, even tho we be prosaic Anglo and Protestant. On the other hand, we have seen through the past quarter of a century the inevitable injustice that follows when a simple, primitive and trusting people are subject to the exploitation of a political regime so corrupt that it almost whitewashes the Carpet-bag Government in the South that followed fast on the heels of the Civil War.

These mountain states have wonderful natural resources, and these will be developed in the near future. The United States can look to this area to provide a large amount of our fuel, lumber and agricultural products. Big business interrests will bring new blood into these states, is now bringing it in, and our cowboy with his ten-gallon hat, our Indian in moccasin and robe, our Spanish Don with his old world courtesy are all being gradually fused into that product of the Melting Pot called the American.

To one who has known the Southwest intimately, the outlook is, after all, encouraging. The qualities that enabled these frontier people to "carry on" in face of most unfavorable conditions are the very qualities that our national life must have if America is to endure.
