The tragedy of the Nez Perce War of 1877 is examined through the actions of Tribal Chief Joseph and Army General O.O. Howard. (Howard was living in Portland when the war began.) Very interesting. Among other things the Nez Perce passed through Yellowstone National Park, and went shopping at stores while on their journey.
Oregon Historical Quarterly Table of Contents Presents a chronological listing of Oregon Historical Quarterly contents from 1900 to 2014. After you bring it up, you can scroll through it, or use Ctrl-F to search for a specific keyword in this list of articles. After you have identified an article that looks good, there are several ways to get a copy of the article. Not all articles are available in electronic form.
If the table of contents doesn't work for you, the more detailed Oregon Historical Quarterly Index, 1981-2014. (which will give you the names of people and events in these articles) will be your next step. You can use the Ctrl-F feature of your web browser search for a specific word. Be careful here. A mention of a name or event doesn't mean the article that has that name or event is in any way about that person or event.
PCC Library also has paper indexes to The Oregon Historical Quarterly, from 1900 - 1980. You will need to come to the library to see them.
