The Gertrude Bass Warner Papers are now online!
CAPS has partnered with the UO Digital Scholarship Center to digitize a collection of personal correspondence, notes, travel diaries and ephemera belonging to Gertrude Bass Warner. Mrs. Warner traveled extensively to build her collection, to study, and to promote multiculturalism and appreciation for Asian culture. She was the founder and director of the UO Fine Art Museum and she has donated over 3,700 works of art to the Jordan Schintzer Museum of Art. The digitization of her papers has been generously supported by Title VI National Resource Center funding. You can find the collection of her papers on Oregon Digital at this link:
