Eugene Chapter Show

        It is doubtful if the architect who designed the Civic center in Eugene was thinking of a Rhododendron Show at the time but it really appeared designed for the purpose. The center of the complex is an auditorium, surrounded by open courtyard. Surrounding this is a wide gallery, covered but open to the inside, with the various municipal offices on the outside of the ring complex. The Show was staged in the gallery area and the various nooks and open rectangles adjacent to it. The exhibits had the advantage of shaded open air. The trusses were shown in tubes firmly fixed in decorative shelving at various heights around the gallery walls.

The trophy winners were as follows:
The Register-Guard trophy for the best plant in the show to Harold Greer for his own seedling 'Trude Webster'.
The Phetteplace trophy for the best species truss or spray to Carl Phetteplace, M. D. for R. austrinum.
