Biography and memorial for Prince Lucien Campbell (1861-1925), who served as the fourth president of the University of Oregon (1902-1925), and who had previously served as the president of the normal school in Monmouth (now Western Oregon University) between 1890 and 1902. (Campbell, in fact, had graduated from the Monmouth school in 1879, before continuing his studies at Harvard.) This volume also describes PLC's family background and the career of his father Thomas Franklin Campbell, who had also served as the president of the school in Monmouth between 1870 and 1879.

The author, Joseph Schafer (1867-1941), was Oregon's first academically trained, professional historian. He served on the faculty of the University of Oregon between 1900 and 1920, and then returned to his home state to serve as superintendent of the Wisconsin Historical Society. He was the author of multiple books and pamphlets, including History of the Pacific Northwest (1905), The Pacific Slope and Alaska (1905), The Acquisition of Oregon Territory (1908), Jesse Applegate: Pioneer and State Builder (1912), and Prince Lucien Campbell (1926).
