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).

Oral history interview with Norm Costa

Norm Costa has lived in the Portland metro area since 1958. He transitioned from an engineering career to running his own beauty salon in Lake Oswego for several years during the 1960's. More recently, Costa has worked for decades as a gay rights activist, mostly working with local health departments on HIV prevention efforts. This interview describes many aspects of the gay experience in Portland over the course of those years, including his experience with politics and activism, personal experiences, gay-oriented clubs and businesses over the years, and the spread of the HIV virus in the early 1980's.
