Mapping the Pacific Northwest: Mapmaking, Mythmaking, and Empire Building

July 3 – August 28, 2004

A new exhibition of historic maps co-organized by Page Stockwell, a Portland map collector, and David Roberts, a researcher at
the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. The exhibition provides a fascinating
glimpse of the Pacific Northwest as it was transformed from a land of myth and mystery to a land that was hotly contested by major European and American powers.
