ABOUT THE ART
He was the 30th Govenor of Oregon from 1967 to 1975. While working for TV station KGW, he produced a documentary on pollution in Oregon, which helped to spur environmental cleanup of the air and the Willamette River. As governor he worked towards environmental clean up, the Oregon Bottle Bill, and public ownership of beaches on the Oregon Coast among others. Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland is one of several items named in his honor. He was a great man, who worked for a lot of things to preserve the integrity of Oregons Coastal Range.
