George H. Himes and group with plaque at Portland park renamed in Himes’ honor

Full-length portrait showing George H. Himes (third from right) and five others standing next to a boulder bearing a plaque in Himes’ honor on Friday, September 20, 1935, in Portland. The photograph was taken at a ceremony marking the official placement of the plaque. A story about the ceremony was published on Page 7 of the Oregon Journal on Sunday, September 22, 1935, under the headline “Himes Park Plaque Put at Entrance.” The story reported: “Official viewing of a bronze plaque affixed to a 10-ton boulder at the entrance to George H. Himes park Friday afternoon marked the culmination of a long campaign by the Oregon chapter, Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America, to have the 34-acre tract renamed for a living pioneer. The organization May 18 conducted a program in the park, marking the change in name from Fulton park, but the plaque, paying tribute to Himes, was not permanently in place.” The story also reported that Himes had come to Oregon in 1853 and had long been the curator of the Oregon Historical Society. Accompanying the story was a cropped version of this photograph, which had the headline “Placing Permanent Himes Plaque.” The photograph had the following caption: “Grouped beside the new name plaque, mounted on a 10-ton boulder in George H. Himes park, are (from left) Mrs. O. J Goffin, chairman of the Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America committee which renamed the park for Himes; Mrs. J. B.
