Title

Ed Bernards oral history recording on farming and settlement in Verboort

Description

An audio recording of an oral history of Edward Bernards recorded on April 5, 1978, of the Verboort community in Washington County, Oregon. He talks about the early settlement of the Dutch and Chinese in Verboort in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Bernards describes the farms and what was produced and shipped around the world, particularly hops. The Catholic Church and community as well as other social activities are discussed, including a Major League baseball player named Larry Jansen. Voices in recording are hard to hear due to white noise, and from 28:40-29:20, background noise makes the voices inaudible. There is a page transcript of an introduction to the interview.
