OREGON LAW REVIEW

THE SOURCES OF THE OREGON CONSTITUTION
W. C. PALMER
Introductory Statement by Charles H. Carey
The somewhat vague impression of the members of the
profession that the Oregon Constitution adopted in 1857
traced its origin, in part at least, to the Indiana Constitu-
tion has been confirmed by a critical and detailed examina-
tion of the various sections by Mr. W. C. Palmer, of the
Portland bar. While some provisions were elsewhere
derived, a very large part of the entire instrument
was taken literally from the Indiana draft of 1851. In
order to make the result of this study available to those
who may have occasion to follow the decisions of the
originating states as aids to the interpretation of the
instrument and in order to give permanence to the collected
precise information thus secured, the tabulated statement
is presented by Oregon Law Review.
