REMARKS:Papers collected by Iris Rice Helliwell. A listing of the individual files was prepared by the Research Librarian ca. 1980. One folder deals with the 1959 Oregon Centennial and local celebrations in Douglas County; another folder contains radio scripts for historical programs about Douglas County. The programs appeared on radio station KRXL, in their "Pioneer of Progress" series. KRXL radio station was listed in the 1954 Roseburg City Directory as being at 1640 Medford Street. It was not listed in the 1960 directory, so the scripts were apparently for the Douglas County Centennial in 1952 rather than for the Oregon Centennial in 1959.; The collection also includes a student paper, "The Hundred Valleys of the Umpqua", by James D. Helliwell, which is a history of towns central Douglas County. James Dexter Helliwell was the son of Iris Rice Helliwell. This collection incudes a telegram to Mrs. H.D. Graves from "Dexter", stating "Dames Dexter arrived six PM..."; The collection includes an undated eulogy by Schiller B. Hermann, written on the death of Dr. Ki Lane Miller.; Another item is a program for "Indian Evening", a musical program, at the Roseburg Armory on 29 April 1908.
