The Only Woman in the Room

The Norma Paulus Story

Oregon State University Press
[Gail] Wells's and [Pat McCord] Amacher's sources include hundreds of pages of oral histories Norma had done for the Oregon Historical Society, newspaper archives, government documents, campaign materials and interviews with family members, friends and colleagues - sources that provided a great deal of information about a remarkable woman, and tell a story that is a really good read.'

- Nancie Peacocke Fadeley, The Register-Guard
Wells and Amacher succeed in presenting a detailed view of Paulus' exuberant (and sometimes pricklish) personality and of her strong ambitions. In short, her story is well worth preserving for future generations of Oregonians.'

- Jeff Maples, Oregon Historical Quarterly
