The University Club of Portland’s Archivist-in-Residence program was established in 2018. The Archivist-in-Residence program enriches the membership experience and allows for greater internal and external accessibility to our rich local history. The Archivist will act as resident Historian to the Club by collecting, arranging, describing, preserving and making available the Club's archival records. This exciting program will shed new light on our Club's collective memory and memories long forgotten, give us fresh context to our place the history of Downtown Portland, and strengthen the progress of the UC Foundation by maintaining our public records.
Each year one UC Foundation-approved Archivist establishes a residency at the Club. They are offered one year of dues free Membership and have the opportunity to create programming for our Members.
If you are interested in a residency, please contact our Communications Director, Alexandra Sowerby at [email protected] or 503 223 6237.
