This collection encompasses an eclectic array of scholarly and creative works completed by Linfield students and faculty as part of the Launching through the Surf: The Dory Fleet of Pacific City project. Works range from papers and presentations about the processes involved in the undertaking to pieces, such as the traveling exhibit and play, produced as integral components of the project. The collection also contains original research and artistic creations that draw upon the primary source materials included in other collections in the project archives.
In addition, the collection includes scholarship completed by individuals who are not associated with Linfield University. Their works provide additional information and insights relevant to the documentation of the fleet’s history and contemporary activities.
Note: Launching through the Surf: The Dory Fleet of Pacific City is an ongoing research project. As such, the materials included in this collection represent only a portion of those that eventually will become available. New content will be added on an ongoing basis.
