Who Was Wiley Griffon?

Too late for the Calendar this week: We hear from Doug Card that he’s doing a free program at 2 pm Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Lane County Historical Museum at the Fairgrounds, on "Wiley Griffon, More Than a Mule Car Driver." Card will talk about recent research that “uncovers new insights in to the remarkable life of Eugene's first well-known black man, who lived here from 1890- 1913, as well as on the history of Eugene, both good and bad." This event is in honor of the centenary of his death and the kickoff for MLK events.
