Political cartoonist, sportsman, world traveler, and gadfly Homer Davenport has been called "Oregon's first media superstar" and "the last casualty of the Titanic."  In the centennial year of his death, historian and author Gus Frederick invites host S.W. Conser to Silverton, Oregon, to tour Homer's ancestral home GeerCrest Farm, learn about the political ferment of the gilded age through a newly annotated collection of Davenport cartoons, and preview the Homer Davenport Days celebration coming up August 3rd through 5th.
