Biographical/Historical note

Bob Wethern (1921-2008) was born in Walla Walla, Washington to Milton and Rita Wethern. After attending schools in Washington and Minnesota, he entered the University of Idaho, where he majored in journalism. While a student, he became the sports editor of the Daily Idahonian.

Beginning in 1946 Wethern worked as a reporter and photographer at the Bremerton Sun, leaving in 1957 to take a position at the National Association of Manufacturers in Portland, Oregon, where he remained until his retirement in 1979.

Wethern's interest in sports and outdoor writing extended beyond his work as a journalist, and continued throughout his life. He edited a series of angling histories, the Rivers of Oregon, and played an important role in preparing the work of other writers for publication, including Lee Richardson and Robert H. Smith.

He was a charter member of the Flyfishers Club of Oregon, and also belonged to the Tau Epsilon fraternity, the Oregon Society of Association Executives, Toastmasters International, the Tacoma Club, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, and the Federation of Fly Fishermen.

Scope and Contents note

This collection consists primarily of Bob Wethern's research materials, notes, and drafts related to two substantial but unfinished writing projects. Most of this material consists of reproductions (annotated photocopies and photographic reproductions) collected for a project Wethern undertook in partnership with artist David Hagerbaumer. This project, "The Waterfowler's Pacific Flyway," was planned as a work of anecdotes and history framed geographically by the Pacific flyway. This migratory path of birds, mostly waterfowl, stretches from the Arctic region in the far north to Central America in the south. The files for Wethern's flyway project include correspondence; documentation from interviews; newspapers and other printed material; copies of archival documents; files of historical materials collected by Wethern; photographs; and manuscript drafts of some sections and chapters.

The second project, "Tackle Counter Tales," was planned as a published collection of fishing and hunting anecdotes. Wethern divided the project into two parts, "Hunting Humor" and "Fishing Funnies." The files for this unfinished project include Wethern's notes and collected research materials, as well as drafts.

Note about dates: in the Container List below, the dates given for photocopied materials generally reflect the dates of Wethern's research activity, when the material was reproduced and the copies were collected, rather than the dates of the original items.

Arrangement note

The collection is arranged with two main series, each including material related to a major research and writing project. Wethern's original filing system reflected this organization for most of his papers, and the rest was sorted into these series during processing. In cases where files were not clearly associated with one of the two projects, they were placed in the series that seemed most closely related.

Photographs that Wethern filed separately from related research materials have been grouped together in the third series; other photographs, which were mingled with related materials, were left in Wethern's filing order to preserve contextual information.

The fourth series consists of an index card file with Wethern's project notes, and computer diskettes with word processing files.

Series 1: Tackle Counter Tales (TCT), 1920-2006. This series contains material related to a planned collection of hunting and fishing anecdotes. It includes interview transcripts and notes, correspondence, printed material (primarily newspaper and magazine clippings), photocopies, photographs, notes and drafts, and historical materials collected by Wethern. There are also several files related to Wethern's assistance with the early stages of Robert H. Smith's book, Native Trout of North America (1984). There is no particular arrangement in this series; Wethern's files on individuals, general subjects, and special topics are intermixed.

Series 2: The Waterfowler's Pacific Flyway (TWPF), 1953-2003. This series contains interview transcripts and notes, correspondence, printed material (primarily newspaper and magazine clippings), photocopies of archival documents, and photographs. There are also manuscript drafts for many chapters. With the exception of some materials organized topically, this series is arranged in a roughly geographical sequence from south to north by region, state, or province, beginning with coastal areas and continuing with inland areas.

Series 3: Photographs, 1900-1990 (bulk 1979-1990). This series contains photographic images in a variety of formats (slides, prints, negatives, photocopies), primarily reproductions of photographs from archival collections gathered by Wethern for Tackle Counter Tales and the Waterfowler's Pacific Flyway. Other photographs, which were mingled with related materials, were left in Wethern's filing order to preserve contextual information and are located in Series 1 and 2.

Series 4: Index card file and computer diskettes, circa 1980-1990. This series consists of an index card file with Wethern's project notes, and computer diskettes with word processing files.
