John McLoughlin (1784-1857) and
Rev. Jason Lee (1803-45)
John McLoughlin was director of the Hudson Bay Company (a British Trading firm) in the Oregon region from 1824-46. During that time, he effectively governed the region and did a great deal to encourage and aid settlers. Remembered as the father of Oregon, he eventually became a U.S. citizen.
 
Rev. Jason Lee played a key role in organizing the settlement of Oregon and establishing its territorial government. Lee presided over Oregons first territorial organization meeting in 1841. Later, he helped to form the territorys provisional government. Unfortunately, Rev. Lee died before the Oregon Territory was formed. Lee represents Oregon in Statuary Hall at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
