Lake Oswego Development Co. letter to Newton Langerman

A letter from the Lake Oswego Development Co. making an offer of land to a buyer in 1949. The letter stipulates that the property is “definitely restricted to the white race.” The black community defeated racist business practices such as this one by working with local and state leaders to pass the Civil Rights Bill, or Public Accommodations Bill, in 1953, which entitled all Oregonians “to the full and equal accommodations, advantages, facilities and privileges of any place of public accommodation, resort or amusement, without any distinction, discrimination or restriction on account of race, religion, color, or national origin.” That law was followed by the Oregon Fair Housing Law in 1957 (amended in 1959).
