Description

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt visited Oregon in 1937 to commemorate Timberline Lodge, a product of his Works Projects Administration. Disabled by polio, the President was careful to never appear in his wheelchair in public. He therefore required an armchair to sit in for support. There was just one problem - the handsome oak chairs Ray Neufer designed for the Lodge banquet room were all side chairs with no arms. Neufer hastily modified his design and built an armchair especially for the president, which is now on display in the historic Lodge. This wool-upholstered replica of that chair was built by Neufer later in his life, and is stamped R. Neufer and the initials WPA. It embodies the grandeur of that ceremony in 1937 and the story of the craftsmanship that saved a President's dignity at the last minute.
