Representative Les AuCoin and Sue AuCoin at the Great Wall of China

Description

Representative Les AuCoin poses with his wife Sue AuCoin at the Great Wall of China. In the 1970s, Representative AuCoin was a leader in the effort to normalize trade relations between the US and the People’s Republic of China. When the two countries normalized relations in January 1979, AuCoin led the first trade delegation to China just one month later, traveling with a group of Oregon business leaders. This is one of a collection of digitized objects from the Les AuCoin Papers (MS.147) at the Pacific University Archives. The original photo remains with the AuCoin family.
