Photograph showing J. D. Lee crowning Catherine J. Adams as mother queen of Oregon pioneers at the Oregon Pioneer Association reunion in Portland on Thursday, July 1, 1920. An unidentified woman is standing to the left of Adams, watching as she is crowned. A cropped version of this photograph was one of six that were published on Page 20 of the Oregon Journal on Friday, July 2, 1920, under the headline “Pioneers Assemble to Recall Trail Blazing Days.” This photograph had the following caption: “The coronation of Mrs. Catherine J. Adams, aged 92, as mother queen of Oregon pioneers, was one of the important features of the forty-eighth annual reunion of Oregon pioneers Thursday. Above—Mrs. Adams, center, receiving from Past President J. D. Lee the crown of roses that designated her as the patriarch of Oregon’s pioneer women.” The photograph accompanied a story headlined “C. H. Caufield is Elected Head of Oregon Pioneers.” In the article, Catherine Adams’ age is given as 91, conflicting with the age in the photo caption.
