The provenance of this movie is unclear. It was transferred to the County Archives by the Sheriff’s Office but may have been produced by the Oregon Historical Society for Multnomah County. It is in color, silent, and lasts a little over eleven minutes. It is not dated but probably was made in the late 1940’s. The movie primarily documents the activities related to the Multnomah County Hospital. The first minute and a half appears to have scenes from the Poor Farm/Edgefield. The remainder shows the exterior of the hospital and grounds, medical records, reception, patients in bed, kitchen and food preparation and delivery, charting, patient tests and procedures, surgery, equipment sterilization, and the baby ward.

This movie was made by the Sheriff’s Office. It is in color, silent, and lasts about twelve and a half minutes. It appears to be some sort of promotional movie made to show off functions and equipment of the Sheriff’s Office. It is not dated but internal evidence indicates it was probably made in the mid 1940’s. It includes staged scenes of criminal division motorcycle deputies responding to a call; firing range practice and weapons use; responding to a hit and run including ambulance response; dragging a lake for a drowning victim; and river patrol fire hose response to a house fire.
