Dates of existence


Richard "Dick" Oswald Eymann was born in Alberta, Canada, in 1919. His father was a German immigrant and Baptist preacher. The family came to the United States in 1921 so his father could preach at a church in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. They later moved around the country, eventually settling in Dallas, Oregon, in 1928. Eymann attended Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, then was drafted in 1942 and served in the Air Force during World War II. After the war, he married Juanita Scott, and together they raised eight children. He returned to Oregon in 1947 and worked for the Weyerhaeuser Company for eight years. He then took part in various other business ventures, including a mining interest in Nevada and a chicken farm in Oregon, before entering politics. He represented Lane County in the Oregon House of Representatives from 1957 to 1974, serving as speaker from 1973 to 1974. After leaving the Legislature, he served on the board of the Emerald People's Utility District in Lane County. He died in 2005.
