The book notes that "This work is an Oregon product. The author, Hubert Beckwith Groves, is an Oregonian; the volume was printed by an Oregon Master Printer and Publisher, John C. Boyer; the engravings were made by Oregon engravers, Hicks-Chatten Company; Thomas. H. Collard, an Oregon artist, drew the necessary illustrations for the book." The book was made possible by a fund supported by more than one hundred Oregonians (all listed by name and business), ranging from the governor and Oregon's Senators, to judges, congressmen, business owners and managers, bankers, leading educators, journalists, and other civic leaders, a kind of who's who in Portland in 1923.
