PHOTO: W. Dorr Legg in 1938. W. Dorr Legg (1904-1994) was an assistant professor of Landscape Architecture at Oregon State University from 1935 to 1942. (See my previous posts W. Dorr Legg OSU archives records 1935-1942 (7/31/10), FBI files on gay OSU professor 1956 (7/7/10)and Gay Oregon Professor 1935 (12/16/06))
I noticed that a mention of the gay OSU Professor W. Dorr Legg was mentioned in the new book by Roy Bennett, et al. "The Story of Corvallis: A Streaming Narrative," Corvallis Community Pages, LLC, Jun. 2013, printed April 24, 2015 and purchased at the Book Bin, Corvallis, Oregon (PDF 14 MB). (Also see Roy Bennett, et al. "The Story of Corvallis: A Streaming Narrative," Corvallis Community Pages, LLC, Jun. 2013 (mobile version))
The book is very rough and incomplete in spots and unfortunately the author recently died. (See "Founder Departs This World," corvallis TODAY corvallistoday.com accessed Jun. 25, 2015 and "Obituary: Roy Bennett (May 5, 1949 - April 12, 2015)," gazettetimes.com posted Apr. 22, 2015)
Roy was the quintessential example of the type of eccentric iconoclasts you can find hanging around a small college town -- it is what makes living in a small college town so enjoyable!
The book's PDF file is not easily read by those of us with low-vision blindness without doing some extra steps, therefore it may be a while before I can blog more on what Roy has said. The parts that I have been able to read are packed with interesting facts, although his sourcing if hard to verify on many of them.
