Digging out some old companies: Lambert Tire Co, Lumbermen's Bondholders Co[edit]

I left a bunch of information on the Lumbermen's Building from looking at stock certificate number 4- not bad, the first stock issued after the president/VP/secretary, I assume. Anyhow, next one is Lambert Tire & Rubber Co. here's a lawsuit, here's a patent, there's a nice article in 'India Rubber' on him and the Portland ties; it claims he invented the Lambert cherry; perhaps he's related to Joseph Hamilton Lambert who is credited as the inventor?

Mostly I'm just suggesting interesting people we haven't really written about. I can't figure out what happened to the tire company (yet). tedder (talk) 03:43, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

@Tedder: I found a handful of newspaper clippings on Lambert Tire:
This photo of the original plant is blurry on the clipping, but better as a screenshot from the digitized newspaper: https://www.newspapers.com/clip/34492856/photo_plant_of_the_lambert_tire/
If you like, I could upload the screenshot, as it's public domain, published in 1919. Cheers! — Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 17:58, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
Update: looks like Henry M. is a son of Joseph H. Lambert:
...and Henry M. invented a "nonrefillable" bottle in 1908, but no articles showing he successfully manufactured it-- just ads soliciting investors:

He also invented a "de-aquating" process:

A few more clippings:

End Domestic Terrorism[edit]

Perhaps (hopefully) the End Domestic Terrorism event this weekend won't amount to much, but the scheduled rally has already received a lot of attention, even nationally. I've started an article and invite others to help expand. Thanks. ---Another Believer (Talk) 19:22, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Related, I've created a more general article at Protests in Portland, Oregon. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:50, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

Joey Gibson + Patriot Prayer[edit]

Should Joey Gibson (political activist) be kept or merged into Patriot Prayer? Discussion at Talk:Patriot Prayer.

Thanks. ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:22, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

South Portland, Oregon[edit]

South Portland, Oregon is coming in 2020. This will require updating to Wikipedia articles (neighborhood pages, address changes, etc., lists (such as National Register of Historic Places listings in Southwest Portland, Oregon, creation of National Register of Historic Places listings in South Portland, Oregon), and categories. Sure, pages will get updated over time, but I'm also wondering if we could be pro-active and prepare to make some of these changes when the time is right.

Are any editors interested in helping to identify potential tasks and/or check them off next year?

Should we create a subpage to coordinate efforts? ---Another Believer (Talk) 01:40, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Bissinger Wool Pullery[edit]

Hello Oregon Project. An article I just created has been accepted. It is of the Bissinger Wool Pullery in Troutdale, Oregon. I believe it is within the scope of the Oregon Project and should be considered for such inclusion. It is rated B on the quality scale. I know little about including articles into Projects or if it is even proper for me, one not related to the project to do so. Thus this message.Hu Nhu (talk) 16:57, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
