Scope and content

Photograph showing General John J. Pershing (front center) walking at the front of a group of men as he leaves Union Station in Portland on Sunday, January 18, 1920. Pershing stopped in Portland during a tour to inspect military bases around the United States. At left is Portland Mayor George L. Baker. At right is Colonel G. W. S. Stevens, recruiting commander in Oregon, whom the Journal described as a classmate of Pershing’s at West Point. A cropped version of this photograph, along with image Nos. 373G0154, 373G0156, 373G0161, and 373G0323, was one of seven published on the front page of the Oregon Journal on January 19, 1920, under the headline “A ‘Moving Picture’ of General Pershing’s Day in Portland From His Welcome at Train to His Farewell.” This photograph had the caption: “General Pershing and Colonel Stevens are shown starting out at the brisk gait which has made the general the bane of fat fellow officers.” Also see image Nos. 373G0155, 373G0157, 373G0158, and 373G0159.
