AbstractThe Oregon Multicultural Archives (OMA) at Oregon State University (OSU) is dedicated to preserving and making accessible the histories of traditionally under-represented groups. OMA curator Natalia Fernandez and Tiah Edmunson-Morton, the OSU Libraries' Instruction and Outreach Archivist, highlight three OMA collections that reflect the impact women of color have had in the state of Oregon: the Annabelle Jaramillo Papers (1967-2001), the Jean Moule Papers (1984-2011), and the Urban League of Portland Records (1945-2008). The authors describe the contents of the collections and suggest research opportunities as well as introduce the women documented in the collections, including Jaramillo, Moule, and Freddye Petett and Alta Corbett-Smith, leaders within the Urban League of Portland.
