The following description comes from the event organizer.

Liz Cheney served as the U.S. representative for Wyoming’s at-large congressional district from 2017 to 2023. She chaired the House Republican Conference, the third-highest position in the House Republican leadership, from 2019 to 2021, and served as the Vice Chair of the Select Committee investigating the January 6 insurrection.

Decades from now, scholars, historians, and students will look to the events of January 6, 2021, as pivotal in American history—events that put to the forefront the question of whether the founding principles of our nation and our Constitution will continue to stand. Cheney had a front-row seat to the events of the day as well as a direct influence, on how they are understood by the American public. Her experience is reflected in her new book, Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning. In 2022, Cheney, along with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, received the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library’s prestigious Profile in Courage Award, with a commendation for her “consistent and courageous voice in defense of democracy.”

For twenty-five years, the Oregon Historical Society has presented the Mark O. Hatfield Lecture Series, bringing together the nation’s top historians and award-winning authors for thought-provoking evenings of history. The series began at the suggestion of Senator Hatfield and continues as a tribute to his legacy of public service and as an opportunity to share stories of the people and events that have shaped history. Past speakers include notable historians and authors Heather Cox Richardson, David McCullough, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Jon Meacham, Cokie Roberts, and Isabel Wilkerson.

Series tickets to the four-part 2024 Mark O. Hatfield Lecture Series go on sale to OHS members on October 19 at 10am and to the public November 2 at 10am.

Tickets to individual lectures go on sale to OHS members January 17 at 10am and to the public January 24 at 10am.
