Join the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum for a free meeting of the museum’s membership. Don’t miss this rousing, funny, and spirited presentation on Governor Tom McCall by Kick Ass Oregon History’s own Doug Kenck-Crispin.
Originally from Spokane, Washington, Kenck-Crispin came with his family in 1982 and settled in North Portland.
Kenck-Crispin is the resident historian for the podcast “Kick Ass Oregon History.” He has been featured in Imbibe and Portland Monthly magazines, OPB’s “Oregon Experience,” “Think Out Loud,” “Weekend Edition,” and the season premiere of Esquire TV’s “Best Bars in America.”
He has written for Portland Monthly, Street Roots newspaper and the Willamette Week. In addition, he hosts various historical speaking series, field trips and historical tours — across the state — that connect people with Oregon.
Kenck-Crispin will be talking about Governor Tom McCall in celebration of this year’s 50th anniversary of HB1601 McCall Beach Bill. McCall is known by many as the man who kept Oregon’s beaches open to the public, but he was so much more. He was an environmental governor, war hawk, republican, documentarian, and politician.
