“Historically, timber, wheat, and fish dictated that Portland would be a commercial and transportation center. Economy and society in Portland developed logically from this base, producing a comfortable, if somewhat provincial, service-oriented city. Thus spared from many of the social effects of late nineteenth-, early twentieth-century industrialization, Portland was consequently denied the benefits of a more diverse population and a more heterogeneous economy.”

—Marshall M. Lee, Winning With People: The First 40 Years of Tektronix (Techtronix, Inc., 1986)
