Kelly Cannon-Miller, executive director of the Deschutes Historical Museum, talked about the Bend Emblem, which was created as the city logo 100 years ago by the Bend Emblem Club. Club members swore an oath to wear a pin emblazoned with the image until the town reached 100,000 inhabitants. They also employed creative marketing tactics to promote the city. In 2014, the population is nearly 80,000 and the logo shows up all over the city.
C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Bend, Oregon, from March 3-5, to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the BendBroadband Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
