Lewis & Clark College began in 1867 as "Albany Collegiate Institute", and was located in Albany, Oregon, 60 miles south of Portland. In 1905 the name was changed to "Albany College". In 1934 Albany College opened an extension in Portland which was to become so popular the entire college moved to Portland in 1938.

Three Bronzes ...
Three "Lewis and Clark" bronzes - Sacagawea and Jean Baptiste, York, and Pio (the Newfoundland mascot of the College) - can be found on the Lewis & Clark College grounds.


Sacagawea and Jean Baptiste ...
On September 5, 2004, Lewis & Clark College dedicated the sculpture "Sacagawea and Jean Baptiste". The seven-foot-tall sculpture was created by Glenna Goodacre. It is located southeast of the Frank Manor House.

Sacagawea was the wife of Lewis and Clark's interpreter Toussaint Charbonneau. She joined the Corps in 1804.

"... Sacagawea joined the Corps of Discovery in 1804, when her husband, Toussaint Charbonneau, was hired as an interpreter. She eventually became a translator herself. A Lemhi Shoshone Indian, Sacagawea spoke not only Shoshoni but also Hidatsa, which she used to communicate with her husband, who spoke Hidatsa and French. Charbonneau's words were then translated from French to English by other members of the Corps. ..." [Lewis & Clark College website, 2014]

Jean Baptiste was born in February 1805 and was a favorite of Captain Clark who affectionately called him "Pomp".

Glenna Goodacre is a sculptor best known for having designed the head profile of Sacagawea and Jean Baptiste on the Sacagawea dollar (entered circulation in the United States in 2000) and the Vietnam Women's Memorial located in Washington, D.C..

York ...
York was an African-American slave owned by Captain Clark who participated in the journey as a full member of the Corps of Discovery. Like Sacagawea, York had a vote when the men decided where to winter in 1905. The six-foot-tall figure of York on the Lewis & Clark College campus was sculpted by Allison Saar and dedicated May 8, 2010. A map of part of the Lewis and Clark journey is etched on the back of the sculpture. It shows "York's Dry Creek" in the upper right. York's Dry Creek is a tributary of the Yellowstone River and is today known as "Custer Creek".
