Medford, Oregon (December 19, 2022) — Jackson County has had its share of incorrigible girls. Southern Oregon Historical Society (SOHS) Archivist Jan Wright will explore case studies of girls from the 1880s to the 1920s who just wanted to have fun and break away from social restrictions.  

Wright will discuss the contributing factors of the girls’ delinquency and society’s response and attempted reforms to their behavior on Wednesday, January 4 from 12 Noon–1:00 p.m. on Zoom as well as in-person at the Medford Library, 205 South Central Avenue. The lecture will be repeated on Wednesday, January 11 from 12 Noon–1:00 p.m. at the Ashland Library, 410 Siskiyou Boulevard.
