Photos show rivers
the way they used to be
More than 300 historic pho
tographs of the Willamette
River basin, taken from 1934
to 1945, compiled by Oregon
State University, are available
online. The photograph collec
tion is part of a comprehensive
fish habitat survey.
Some of the pictures are of
the Clackamas River, and show
migrating salmon and lamprey.
The photo project is part of
the university library's effort at
making important research ma
terial more widely available
through digital technology. The
Willamette Basin Stream Survey
Photo Collection offers research
ers and interested members of
the public a glimpse of a signifi
cant body of work by a largely
unrecognized group of scien
tists. The photos were part of a
larger survey of the Columbia
River basin, coordinated by the
U.S. Department of
Commerce's Bureau of Fisher
ies. That full survey covered
more than 6,200 kilometers of
the Columbia basin in Oregon,
Washington and Idaho, and de
tailed conditions in nearly 400
streams that served as spawn
ing and rearing habitat for Chi
Between 1948 and 1950, the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
published seven reports summa

years those summaries served

In 1987, however, scientist
James R. Sedell and other re
searchers in the U.S. Forest
Sservice's Pacific Northwest
Research Station on the OSU
campus located the documents.
Sedell and others have since
made the survey available in
digital form and compared it
with more recent surveys.
Last year Sedell donated the
documents from the survey -including
notes, survey data and reports
- to the university library at
OSU, where they are maintained
in the archives.
"The images are important
because they show us what the
Willamette River looked like 60
years ago," said Larry Landis,
university archivist. "You can
see how the river is similar, or
different, depending on the lo
cation." The photos can be

(Continued from page 1) . ( .
From the forging of their relationship through this project,
the city of Selah went on to press Yakima County to form a
lead entity with other valley cities and the county in order to
obtain state salmon restoration funds.
Though the road to recovery was rocky, Selah officials
persevered in their belief; their efforts resulted in the Wash
ington Department of Fish and Wildlife calling together a
summit for the entire basin that led to the formation of the
Yakima Basin Salmon Recovery Entity.
Next, the Regional Citizens Forum for Fish and Economy
received the Private Partnership Award. This goes to a busi
ness that has developed rich partnerships in the pursuit of
Restoring, rebuilding and protecting the salmon of the
Columbia River Basin is, perhaps, the most controversial is
sue of the Columbia Basin, because of the number and
strength of the river's many stakeholders, said Patt.
When the stakeholders dig in their heels over the issues,
nothing much is accomplished, he said. When they collabo
rate and cooperate, as in the Umatilla Basin, amazing things
happen. Antone Minthorn and N. Kathryn "Kat" Brigham
of the Confederated Tribes of Umatilla, along with Lynn
Chamberlain of the Oregon Wheatgrowers Association and
Bruce Buckmaster of BioOregon of Astoria, formed the
Regional Forum for Fish and Economy.
Since the publication of their white paper on the use of
artificial production a year ago, a new consensus has emerged
on the use of hatcheries, and their future efforts are ex
pected to be just as fruitful, said Patt.
Earth Justice Legal Defense Fund received the Conserva
tion Advocacy Award. This goes to an advocacy organization
that has best focused its resources on behalf of salmon.
Earth Justice Legal Defense Fund, represented by Todd
True and Steve Mashuda, has advocated for reform of the
Federal Columbia River Power System for a decade. It has
actively litigated to protect salmon habitat on public lands,
and has sought enforcement of the aquatic conservation strat
egy of the Northwest Forest Plan. In a recent case, US. Dis
trict Judge James A. Redden accepted the Earth Justice argu
ment that provisions of the National Marine Fisheries Service's
biological opinion were not supported by an adequate com
mitment of resources, and he invalidated NMFS's rule.
Tim Watters, of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, received the
Jammin' Volunteer Award, which goes to an individual who
embodies the volunteer spirit necessary for restoring salmon.
During Spirit of the Salmon's last two waterfront events -Jammin'
for Salmon and Wy-Kan-Ush-Pum - Tim Watters
worked from dawn to dusk.
Nora Mead Brownell, commissioner on the Federal En
ergy Regulatory Commission (FERC) received the Leader
ship Award. This goes to an individual who, like the salmon,
relies upon his or her instincts to make progress in recover
ing the species while brushing past the obstacles that would
bar the way to one less bold. Brownell was recognized by the
Spirit of the Salmon board for her interest in the tribal
perspective on the impacts of hydro development on tribal
resources, and her willingness to meet with tribal members,
in their territories, to hear their views.
