Title

Feb. 25, 1990 Benton County Black History tour tree planting

Description

On February 25, 1990, OSU Forestry and OSU Black Student Union co-sponsored a Benton County Black History tour. Dr. Zybach worked with Jeff Boyd, then President of the OSU Graduate and Professional Students to create and lead this tour, which also included Kathryn Bogle, fellow student Angela Sondenaa, and professor Wil Gamble, the first Black faculty member at OSU. The event included one of the first public presentations of Letitia’s story at the Tampico stop, and culminated with the planting of a tree on the OSU quad that commemorated the lives and achievements of Benton County’s Black pioneers. This photo shows Wil Gamble assisting Kathryn with help planting the commemorative tree. According to Dr. Zybach, the photo was probably taken by Jeff Boyd.
