Harvey W. Scott Memorial, Mt. Tabor, Portland

Today I hiked up Mt. Tabor, an extinct volcano in the middle of S.E. Portland, and found this artistic memorial to Harvey W. Scott, 1838 – 1910. He was the editor of the Oregonian newspaper; and the plaque says he was a “pioneer, editor, publisher, and molder of opinion in Oregon and the nation.” This statue was sculpted by the same artist who designed the presidents on Mt. Rushmore. On a different note, Portland is only one of two cities with an extinct volcano in it’s city limits, the other one is Bend, Oregon.
