About The Mark O. Hatfield Lecture Series

For twenty-three years, the Oregon Historical Society’s Mark O. Hatfield Lecture Series has earned a reputation for hosting America’s most prominent historians, biographers, and public officials. The series began at the suggestion of Senator Hatfield, and continues as a tribute to his legacy of public service and as an opportunity to share stories of the people and events that have shaped American history. Past speakers include notable historians David McCullough and Doris Kearns Goodwin, late broadcast journalist Cokie Roberts, diplomat Madeleine Albright, and authors Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Jon Meacham, and Isabel Wilkerson.
