A free presentation by Gus Frederick. This talk addresses the Freethought movement in Western Oregon during the latter quarter of the19th Century, beginning with the seeds of the Oregon State Secular League, culminating with the establishment of Liberal University of Oregon at Silverton, the West’s first strictly secular center of higher learning.
Gus Frederick is a native Oregonian and third generation Free Thinker. He was born in 1954, 100 years after his hometown of Silverton was founded. He is by training a filmmaker and photographer, although he has broadened that term to multimedia artist. He currently works as a conceptual artist, photographer, filmmaker and animator.
