Scope and content

Photograph showing people dining at long tables during an outdoor luncheon honoring officers of the frigate USS Constitution on August 9, 1933. The luncheon was held at Laurelhurst Park in Portland. The Constitution and crew visited Portland from August 2 to August 22, 1933, as part of a national tour. A cropped version of this photograph was published on Page 3 of the Oregon journal on August 9, 1933, under the headline “Dinner in Park Fetes ‘Old Ironsides.’ ” The photograph had the following caption: “Civic luncheon, preceding dedication of marker to veteran of Constitution, is held under towering firs in Laurelhurst park. At the head table were Lieutenant Commander Henry Hartley and Lieutenants D. W. Lyon and W. J. Dean and Dan E Gould, general chairman of program. Descendants of heroic figures of Constitution’s history were introduced.” The photograph accompanied the continuation of a front-page story about the luncheon. See related image Nos. 371N3723, also taken at the luncheon, and 371N3725, which may depict the marker dedication referred to in the caption for this photograph.
