Kenneth R. Coleman Oregon

Kenneth R. Coleman moved to Oregon’s Willamette Valley as a child, in the back of his family’s Buick rather than a covered wagon. He left a career in marketing and advertising with the intention of studying the philosophy of history, but instead became fascinated by the complicated colonial and racial history of the Pacific Northwest. He is the recipient of a MA in History from Portland State University and currently resides in Portland, Oregon, where he works as an independent historian, writer, and musician. Dangerous Subjects is his first book.
