Esther Lovejoy a Candidate for Oregon's Statuary Hall

Esther Pohl Lovejoy is one of the "worthy" historical figures in Oregon history to be considered for a place in the Oregon section of Statuary Hall in Washington, D.C.

The fourth grade students at The Madeleine School in Portland, directed by their teacher Ms. Slavik, created interviews with the candidates for Oregon's representatives to Statutory Hall. Students took he roles of interviewers and historical subjects for the filmed interviews, posted to a blog.

The student interview with Esther Pohl Lovejoy is well worth the visit:

Congratulations students and Ms. Slavik for your explorations of Oregon history!
