Following are some of the books of biographical sketches, or mug books as they are commonly called, for Portland and Multnomah County. The links will take you to lists of the names of individuals for whom biographical sketches are included each volume.

I cannot do lookups in these volumes. They are widely available in northwest libraries or on microfilm.

I hope, one day, to have the biographical sketches included as well. If you have a text file of any of these sketches, and wish to donate it to the cause, please contact me.
