Eden's Melting Pot: South Portland Raises Mel Blanc
Portland is a city Jewish pioneers helped found and govern. Mel Blanc's family moved here from San Francisco  what drew them? What did it mean to be Jewish in Portland during Mel Blanc's growing years? Who else lived in South Portland? Mel Blanc ascribed his astounding ear for dialect and accent to the multi-lingual environment of South Portland. What was the neighborhood like?

Guest speakers: For this lecture we are partnering with the Oregon Jewish Museum. Judy Margles will bring to life the immigrant neighborhood in which Mel Blanc grew up, the Portland Public Schools he attended, the many languages he heard spoken around him, and the Neighborhood House, a building which still stands, where he first learned to play a musical instrument and began his career as a performer.

Judy Margles will illustrate her lecture with slides.

This lecture if the third of four lectures.
