Atiyeh! provides an introduction to The Governor Victor Atiyeh Collection at Pacific University and commemorates the opening exhibition of the collection in October 2013.
Victor Atiyeh served as Oregon's 32nd governor from 1979-1987. Serving at a time when budget crises were at the forefront, he took a challenging situation and created his legacy: a more efficient government and a more diversified Oregon economy. His governorship, his public service, and his private life tell of a second-generation immigrant success story, of a native Oregonian devoted to his home state, and of a leader who led in trying times, emerging widely admired.
The exhibit, and this accompanying catalog, provides an overview of Atiyeh's life and a sampling of the rich documentary history within the Victor Atiyeh Papers at the Pacific University Archives. The complete collection includes more than fifty boxes of letters, photographs, documents and memorabilia.
