Excerpt from Exercises of the Semi-Centennial Anniversary of Tualatin Academy and Pacific University, Held at Forest Grove, Oregon, July 9, 1898

The following extract from the very full report of the "Golden Jubilee" of Tualatin Academy and Pacific University, which appeared in the Portland Oregonian of July 10, 1898, is a fitting introduction to the account given in these pages of the exercises of that memorable occasion:

Forest Grove, July 9. - The semi-centennial of Tualatin Academy and Pacific University was fitly celebrated at Forest Grove today. Five hundred men and women, including practically all the delegates to the Congregational National Council, and a goodly number of Portland citizens, boarded a special Southern Pacific train of eight cars at 1:30 P. M. and sped to Forest Grove to participate in the felicitations of this pioneer college.

As the train pulled out of Portland the landscape that unrolled to the eastward was a revelation to the Easterners, who largely composed the excursionists. As elevation was gained and the deep canyons were crossed in the southern part of town, the peaks of the Cascade range seemed to take added height. Hood's head was pillowed on a bank of cumulus clouds, that hugged the horizon reaching to the southward. Another cloud floated so as to cast a visible shadow across the snowy fields of St. Helens. Both mountains stood out boldly, though there was enough haze in the air to give what artists call atmosphere to the picture. The rugged line of mountains was in full view, and the dark green of the timbered slopes was broken in the middle ground by cultivated fields.
