Nearly forty years after he left office and thirty years after his death, Oregon Governor Tom McCall remains one of the state's most renowned political figures. His bold achievements set a new standard for the rest of the nation: The Beach Bill and the Bottle Bill, the SB100 land-use law -- all of these emerged from the McCall years.
