In June 1921, newspapers all over the nation were covering the
crime spree of train robber Roy Gardner. On June 16, Louis Sonney, a local cop,
arrested Roy in what is now McMenamins Olympic Club Hotel. And that was just
the start of a long, strange saga for the two who became unlikely friends.
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
