Janice Dilg grew up in the original Northwest—Ohio—and moved to the New Northwest—Oregon—in 1977. After apprenticing for 3 years, she became a journeywoman cabinetmaker and woodworker for a decade. In 2001, she earned an MA in history from Portland State University, with a focus on the Pacific Northwest, women’s history, oral history, and legal history. Janice was the Project Director for the Century of Action: Oregon Women Vote, 1912-2012, teaches the Monumental Women Senior Capstone at PSU, and is the oral historian for the U.S. District Court of Oregon Historical Society Oral History Project. She was a founding member of the Oregon Women’s History Consortium, and the Northwest History Network, and currently serves on the Board of Directors of both organizations.
