    East Bend: History Pub Encore - A History of Oregon State University

    12:00 PM - Wednesday - Meeting Room

    Bill Robbins, author and emeritus distinguished professor at Oregon State University, presents the history of OSU.

    This presentation will be placed in the context of the author’s early association with the beginnings to Oregon State University’s Cascade campus (distant delivery classes taught through Central Oregon Community College). The talk will then treat with the sectarian roots to Corvallis College/Oregon Agricultural College—its faculty, programs, and expanding course offerings into the twentieth century. Robbins’ emphasis throughout will focus on the institution’s contextual relationships with state, regional, national, and international events and circumstances. The presentation will treat with civil rights activities and the effects of Title IX on salary differentials between men and women faculty and its effects on women’s sports programs. The author will also address the rise of humanities and arts programs in the last forty years to parity with the professional colleges—with OSU becoming a truly comprehensive university. The concluding remarks will discuss briefly the emergence of the OSU Cascade campus.
    William G. (Bill) Robbins is emeritus distinguished professor at Oregon State University, where he taught from 1971 until 2002. Following a four-year stint in the United States Navy, he immigrated to Oregon from the East Coast and earned a Ph.D. degree in History at the University of Oregon (1969). During his more than thirty years at Oregon State University, Robbins taught courses in Western American, Pacific Northwest, and Environmental history. He is the author and editor of several books on Oregon and the American West. Among his books are Colony and Empire: The Capitalist Transformation of the American West (1994), Landscapes of Promise: The Oregon Story, 1800-1940 (1997), Landscapes of Conflict, 1940-2000 (2004), and Oregon, This Storied Land. Oregon State University Press published The People’s School: A History of Oregon State University in the fall of 2017 to commemorate the institution’s sesquicentennial as a land-grant school. His current project is a history of the H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest.
