The Pineapple War: Labor Action in The Dalles
Those who read local newspapers or listen to local radio know Rodger Nichols. Our local historian and member of the Courthouse board tells of the time The Dalles made national headlines. A 1949 longshoreman strike in Hawaii led to a riot in our fair city when a boatload of pineapples showed up!
Regional History Forum Programs, now in the series’ 43rd year, are free; however, donations toward the operation of the Original Courthouse are gladly accepted. Send to P.O. Box 839, The Dalles.
