Synopsis

An Oregon classic since 1928, "Oregon Geographic Names" is a comprehensive reference to place names throughout the state. A wide range of readers, from librarians and researchers to travellers and avocational historians, have come to depend on the book's exhaustive and sometimes quirky entries over the years. The seventh edition is significantly expanded, with more than 6,200 entries, arranged alphabetically. Each entry lists the county where the place is located and reports what is known about the origin and meaning of the name. An accompanying CD-Rom holds complete biographical and geographical indexes and maps that show the locations of over 1,600 place names, primarily historic post offices. Lewis A. McArthur published the first edition of "Oregon Geographic Names" in 1928 and prepared all or most of the next two editions. Lewis L. McArthur, took up the project with the fourth edition of "Oregon Geographic Names". Retired from a career as an executive with a Portland-based steel firm, he is active in various preservation projects and serves on the U.S. Board on Geographic Name.
