Oregon Historical Society says
The United States we know today wasn't a foregone conclusion. Much of what we take for granted had to be built—and not everyone agreed on proper construction materials! Enjoy the deep historical perspective and quirky stories Dr. Laura Gifford brings to the documentary foundations of our nation. You will come away from this guided tour of Democracy’s Blueprints: The Documents that Built America informed, challenged, and sometimes amused by this window into American political development.

Laura Jane Gifford holds a Ph.D. in American history from the University of California, Los Angeles, and has published extensively in the field of modern American political history. Her winter 2014 article for the Oregon Historical Quarterly, “Planning for a Productive Paradise: Tom McCall and the Conservationist Tale of Oregon Land-Use Policy,” won the 2015 Joel Palmer Award for best article published in OHQ the previous year. Her other publications include The Center Cannot Hold: The 1960 Presidential Election and the Rise of Modern Conservatism (2009) and the co-edited volume The Right Side of the Sixties: Reexamining Conservatism's Decade of Transformation (2012).
