SOURCE FOR OREGON BEAVER MONEY HISTORY  

   Michael J. Sullivan writes: "With all of the controversy over 
   the recent Spink's sale cancellation, it may be time to return 
   to the time-honored tradition of reaching for a good book. 
   During my 11 years seeking out bank histories across the 
   United States for my burgeoning collection, I found the 
   following item:  

   Richter, A.  Century of Banking in the Rogue River Valley. 
   Medford, OR: Pacific Coast Banking School, 1967.  vii, 204 
   pp. "Submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements of the 
   Pacific Coast Banking School conducted by Western States 
   Bankers Association of the University of Washington, Seattle." 
   The book includes a history of the Oregon Exchange Co. gold 
   coins (aka "Beaver Money") which is reasonable well written.  

   A copy of this thesis can be borrowed from your local library 
   on the inter-library loan program.  The copy I borrowed was 
   secured from the Jackson County Library System, Medford, 
   OR in June 1998."
