The folks over at the Des Chutes Historical Society like to keep us in tune with our town's history, so we went ahead and let them vote off-ballot for a category they created all on their own: Historical Bend Hottie.

Here is the message we received.


George Palmer Putnam, previous owner/editor of the Bend Bulletin (1910-1917), mayor of Bend in 1912 at age 24, influential member of the Bend Emblem Club, heir to Putnam publishing, married first to Dorothy Binney then later in life to Amelia Earhart. Has been played in the movies by Richard Gere, for heaven's sake! LOL!
