Board of Trustees Honors John Croy

At the meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Benton County Historical Society on Thursday, August 20, 2009 John Croy was recognized for his generous sponsorship of this year's Chautauqua program.

In its 13th year, the summer Chautauqua lecture series was co-sponsored by the Museum, Corvallis/Benton County Public Library, and Linn Benton Community College Benton Center, with support from the Oregon Council for the Humanities. But, Humanities funding was awarded for only two lectures in the series. John Croy's generous sponsorship of four lectures made the program possible.

Four hundred twenty people attended the six lunch-time talks at the Corvallis Library, hearing scholars presentations ranging from "Stitched Patches: Quilts of Celebration" to "Changing Perspectives on Oregon's Geology".

Many thanks to John Croy, an Edward Jones financial advisor, for his generous support.
