2007-2008 Oregon Blue Book: These murals depicting lumber and agricultural workers were painted by Carl Morris in 1942 after he won a WPA Federal Arts Project mural competition in 1941. They was installed in the lobby of the Eugene Post Office in 1943. Beginning with the 1999-2000 Blue Book, a color center section has included topical exhibits. This one included photographs of Depression Era public works such as bridges, dams, art, and buildings.
