Description and Holding Information
1849-, Oregon, Legis. Jrnls., Senate/House Comb., 1915-
Journals of the Senate and House of the Legislative Assembly of the State of Oregon: title varies, 1915-, var. state printers. (The journals for the
House and Senate were published in a combined series inextricably covering both houses in this series begun in 1915. Prior to 1913 the journals of the
Senate and House were published in two separate series that are offered elsewhere on this site. At the end of the eighteenth century the phrase
“Oregon Territory ” signified a vast but amorphous area stretching from somewhere above the Spanish settlements in California to somewhere below the
Russian settlements in Alaska, and including just about everything within that span between the Rockies and the Pacific. Spain, Russia, Great Britain, and
the United States all made equally nebulous claims on the area. By 1818 the lack of forces on the ground having rendered the Spanish claims untenable,
the United States and Great Britain attempted to exclude all other parties by signing a Convention of Joint Occupation. The reality of the latter was
confirmed in 1821, when Russia agreed to limit its settlements to areas within present-day Alaska. The joint U.S./U.K. occupation kept the peace for a
decade or two so long as the area was virtually unpopulated by Europeans. A legislature of sorts functioned in the more American southern part of the
territory during 1844-49. The laws adopted by that body can be found in the compiled laws of Oregon, 1853. By the mid-1840s there were sufficient
American settlers in the southern portions of the condominium that determining who was in charge came near to being a causus belli. Fortunately, in 1846
President Polk negotiated a treaty that conceded everything north of the forty-ninth parallel, and all of Vancouver Island, to Great Britain. In 1848
Congress organized everything south of the forty-ninth parallel as the Territory of Oregon. The first Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Oregon
met in July of 1849. Statehood finally came on February 14, 1859, but only after the area comprising the contemporary State of Washington had been
severed off and organized into Washington Territory. The first session of the Oregon State Legislative Assembly met in May 1859.)
