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."
