The book contains information on the state, city, county, and federal governments in Oregon, educational institutions, finances, the economy, resources, population figures and demographics3

The 1919 edition contained a "statement of registered motor vehicles, chauffeurs, and dealers from 1905 to 1919", and "a general summary of in the taxable property in Oregon from 1858 to 1918"4


Secretary of State Ben Olcott published the first edition in 1911 in response to an "increased demand for information of a general character concerning Oregon"5

Early editions of the book were available free from the State4 By 1937, copies cost 25; in 1981 the book cost $467

In 1953, a legislative ways and means subcommittee, headed by Representative Francis Ziegler, was going to confer with Secretary of State Earl T Newbry about how to improve the Blue Book8 This was following complaints by Representative Monroe Sweetland that the book was "obsolete, carelessly edited, and only of limited use"8 Calling the book "an inferior job", Sweetland criticized the timing of book's publication long after elections, as well as the map in the back8 As a result, the 1953 Legislative Assembly passed a law requiring the book be published soon after the legislature convenes9

The 1993–94 edition of the book contained a four-page erratum5 When Norma Paulus was Secretary of State, she would send a free copy of the book to the first person to find a mistake in each new edition5 The 1995–96 edition was reduced in size from its predecessors5


A 1995 Register-Guard editorial called the book "indispensable"5
