What is the origin of our annual auction theme?

“Good Citizens are the Riches of a City” is a quote from Portland soldier, attorney, and writer Charles Erskine Scott Wood (1852-1944). The sentiment is inscribed on the base of the Skidmore Fountain, built in 1888 — a traditional sight at First and Ankeny in Portland’s Skidmore-Old Town National Historic Landmark District.
