In this episode of Beyond Footnotes, we sit down with Taylor Rose, a second-year graduate student in the Department of History at Portland State University. His thesis looks at the growth of multi-use roads in the forested mountains just east of Portland, Oregon, from the Columbia Gorge Highway to Clackamas River logging roads. We discuss the CCC, Oregon’s forests as well as the research process itself.
