Scope and content

Photograph showing President Warren G. Harding (center) saluting after stepping out of his car in Portland on July 4, 1923, probably at the end of a parade marking his arrival. He is flanked by military servicemen. At far left, the man standing in the car is probably Portland Mayor George L. Baker. Harding’s visit was part of a trip across the nation and followed a stop in Meacham, Oregon, on July 3, 1923. Events in Portland included a parade, an address by Harding at Multnomah field, a visit to veterans at Hahnemann hospital, and a tribute to Oregon soldiers killed in World War I.
