Portland Public Schools has one of the larger intact collections of pre 1967 school buildings in the West, with 94 of its 98 properties erected between 1845 and 1967. Kirk Ranzetta will discuss how the City of Portland erected dozens of schools in a variety of designs in an attempt to address the city’s ever changing demographics, political ideologies, architectural character, educational philosophies, notions of health and fitness, and economic progress. Discussion will include a review of three major school building campaigns and relate stores about architects, builders, administrators, and students.
