This virtual collection comprises items used in the exhibit, The Northwest Wing, which was published on the multco.us website in September 2021. The exhibit explores the political and social contexts at play during past visits to Multnomah County by politicians on the national stage. The main sections of the exhibit highlight Harry Truman's 1948 whistlestop tour, sojourns by Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, and Barry Goldwater during the 1964 presidential election year, and the almost-visit of Richard Nixon in 1970 that inspired the organization of the Vortex concert.
