Thursday at the Library – History of Camp White

Friends of the Eagle Point Branch Library will host “Thursday at the Library” on Thursday, May 20, 4-5:30 p.m., in the Library Community Room, 239 W. Main St.

The history of Camp White will be presented by Dan Kelly, Strategic Manager at the VA Southern Oregon Rehabilitation Center and Clinics (formerly known as the Domiciliary). Kelly’s PowerPoint presentation will illustrate how a WWII-era complex that started as a 77-square-mile Army Training Center in 1941, transformed into a rehabilitation medical facility for Armed Forces personnel. There will also be a showing of the SOP-TV documentary Camp White Story: Southern Oregon Goes to War.

WWII artifacts on loan from the White City Military Museum, the Eagle Point Historical Society Museum, and from personal collections will be on display at the Eagle Point Branch Library.
