Scope and content

Photograph showing four people, three men and a woman, standing in a row in front of a wall at Union Station in Portland. The second man from right is Earl C. Mills, leader of the Shriners; the woman is Mrs. Charles C. Hall. The other two men are unidentified, but they may be Charles C. Hall, potentate of the Al Kader Shriners in Portland, and Hugh Caldwell of Seattle, imperial high priest of the Shrine. The Oregon Journal published a front-page story about Mills’ visit to Portland, headlined “High Leader of Shrinedom City Visitor,” on Thursday, May 11, 1933, the day Mills arrived. According to the story, the Halls and Caldwell accompanied Mills on the train from Spokane, Washington, to Portland. Published with the story was a cropped version of this photograph, showing only Mills and Mrs. Hall. The photograph was published under the headline “Big Arab Chief Calls” and had the following caption: “Earl C. Mills, imperial potentate of the Shrine, is greeted at the Union station by Mrs. C. C. Hall, wife of the potentate of Al Kader temple.” Image note: The name “Mills” is written on the negative below the second man from the right, and the name “C C Hall” is written below the woman. The writing is visible at the bottom of the image. See related image No. 371N1765.
