This is our seventh annual Tree of Giving Book Drive!  Please visit our Tree of Giving located near the entrance of the library, and see the beautiful ornaments adorning it.  For every book donated, we add one ornament to our Tree of giving.

So think of the Tree of Giving as you do your Black Friday shopping!  And thank you for your support from the Mark O. Hatfield Library, Willamette Store, and Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

Brownbag Discussion with Former Staff to Senator Hatfield

BA feature-length documentary film highlighting the leadership and career of the late Senator Mark O. Hatfield will also premiere Tuesday, November 19 in Portland.

In conjunction with this event, the Mark O. Hatfield Library and University Archives are pleased to announce that several former Congressional staff members to Senator Hatfield, including a number of WU Alums, will be reuniting on campus and making themselves available for a conversation about Senator Hatfield.  This will take place on November 18th at 12-1pm in the Hatfield Room of the library. This gathering will provide an opportunity for an informal discussion of the Senator, his career, and most importantly, the staffers’ personal experiences working alongside the Senator through many incredible moments in Oregon and United States history.

Please bring your own lunch and lots of questions for this causal get-together. Light refreshments will be provided.  For additional information please contact Mary McRobinson, University Archivist, 503-370-6764; <mmcrobin@willamette.edu>
