About the Author:  Jim Stembridge worked more than a decade as legislative staff (non-partisan committee administrator) in Oregon’s Capitol in Salem.  He has written summaries of several hundred legislative bills.  He did project management, program administration, and public information work for several state agencies, including the Oregon State Fire Marshal’s Office—writing, editing, and producing more than 100 government publications, including newsletters, reports, and fire safety curricula.   He was an adjunct instructor at the National Fire Academy (National Emergency Training Center) in Emmitsburg, MD.  He earned a PhD in geography at the University of Oregon.  His interests in photography date from the years he did coastal hazards research and taught—and prepared illustrations for—geography classes at the University of Oregon (Eugene) and East Carolina University (Greenville, NC).  He is the author/editor of Pathfinder: The First Automobile Trip between Newport and Siletz Bay, Oregon, July 1912 (Lincoln County Historical Society, 1975), a collection of historic photographs.
