Pints from the Past: Mrs. Pittock Part II
Our popular Pints from the Past series is back with the help of the Lake Theater & Cafe! Enjoy a 3-part series on Georgiana Pittock and the Pittock family presented by Mary and Michael Hutchens.
Part II: The Last Ten Years: 1908-1918
This is the “rest of the story” in Georgiana Pittock’s life. It features her part in the building of the Pittock Mansion, the evolution of women’s voting rights in Oregon, World War I and her dealing with the effects of a stroke.
Mrs. Pittock will be speaking for about 50 minutes, along with her chauffeur, and will take questions following her talk. Don't miss this opportunity to meet a most modern Victorian woman who helped form present-day Portland, Oregon.
Mary Hutchens (a retired teacher who has 18 years in community theatre and portrays Mrs. Pittock) and Mike Hutchens (a former administrator from Portland Public Schools who portrays her chauffeur) tell the stories of Georgiana and Henry Pittock. The Pittocks endured the Oregon Trail and were integral to the growth of the city of Portland, Oregon. Each story is approximately 50 minutes in length, followed by time for questions and answers.
This program is offered by the Lake Oswego Public Library in cooperation with Clackamas County Historical Society and the Lake Theater & Café. Admission is free and no ticket is required (though food and drink purchase is encouraged to offset the cost to the Lake Theater). Doors open at 6:30, the presentation begins at 7:00. The Lake Theater & Café is located at 106 North State Street in Lake Oswego. For more information, contact Carissa Barrett at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-534-4237.
