Victor Atiyeh served as Oregon's 32nd governor from 1979-1987. Serving at a time when budget crises were at the forefront, he took a challenging situation and created his legacy: a more efficient government and a more diversified Oregon economy. His governorship, his public service, and his private life tell of a second-generation immigrant success story, of a native Oregonian devoted to his home state, and of a leader who led in trying times, emerging widely admired.

This exhibit provides an overview of Atiyeh's life and a sampling of the rich documentary history within the Victor Atiyeh Papers at the Pacific University Archives. The complete collection includes more than fifty boxes of letters, photographs, documents and memorabilia.
