The Seamy Side of Medford: 1884-1935 with Ben Truwe

June 1, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Medford resident Ben Truwe will provide stories from the poorly documented underworld of Medford and readings from Medford’s vice surveys of the 1950s.

Ben Truwe is a recovering printer and a former trustee of the Southern Oregon Historical Society. He is the author of the “Looking Back” Jackson County history books and creator of the Southern Oregon History, Revised website.

This program is being offered in person and via Zoom for a limited number of registered attendees.

The monthly Windows in Time lunchtime lectures feature well-known writers and historians and bring alive the people, values, and events that shaped our southern Oregon heritage. Lectures are jointly sponsored by the Southern Oregon Historical Society (SOHS) and Jackson County Library Services.
