About Timber Culture

Timber Culture

Presented by Gwendolyn Trice, Founder & Executive Director of Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center

Join us for an inclusive look at Oregon's multicultural logging industry, and the loggers and their families drawn together by the Great Migration to live and work as neighbors.

About the Speaker:
Gwen Trice, a videographer, contributed key oral history interviews, photographs and transcripts for the OPB documentary, The Logger's Daughter. Prior to Gwen's efforts, there was no public record available of these pioneering individuals. A partial list of Gwen's efforts include: Oregon Encyclopedia on-line [Maxville], Blackpast.org [Maxville], Preservation Magazine and The Forum Quarterly [National Trust for Historic Preservation], Oregon Historic Quarterly and a musical play called On to Higher Ground. Gwen served on the Oregon State Advocacy Commission of Black Affairs for 5 years, and currently serves on the State Historic Preservation Committee. Gwen is a 2015 recipient of the Oregon Women of Achievement Award, and a nationally certified interpretive guide (NAI) 2017.
