A look at the role of pacifism in World War II and one Oregon conscientous objector camp - Unedited
Steve McQuiddy talks about his new book, "Here on the Edge", published by Oregon State University. McQuiddy looks at a long-neglected element of World War II history: the role of pacifism in what is often called "The Good War." He shares the fascinating story of one conscientious objector camp located on the rain-soaked Oregon Coast, Civilian Public Service (CPS) Camp #56, providing the definitive history of the Fine Arts Group at Waldport.

Steve McQuiddy writes and lectures on Pacific Northwest history and culture, particularly the eccentric quarter. His monograph, The Fantastic Tale of Opal Whiteley, has been widely cited and reprinted, with an expanded version published in 2012. He has written for Salon, Mother Jones, Seattle Times, and Best Essays Northwest, and has been awarded by the Society of Professional Journalists. He is an honorary director of the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission and currently teaches writing at Lane Community College in Eugene.
