News Release
Pacific University News Capsule - 09/16/22

Greetings from Pacific University, home to the Rep. Les AuCoin ‘69, Hon. '78 collection of papers and artifacts. We were delighted by the turnout for the dedication event, with so many of the congressman’s friends, staff and family in attendance. We also were gratified by the response to the visit by activist/author Richard Lapchick. It's been a good week.
