The Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission (OCHC) is a non-profit organization based in the U.S. state of Oregon. The commission was formed in 1991 in order to discover and commemorate important literary and cultural contributions to Oregon's history. The group does this through publications and other media, memorials, and public events. An edict by Portland mayor Bud Clark formally inaugurated the group, which was granted non-profit status in 1993.
Among the projects the group has helped sponsor is The Oregon Encyclopedia.
The 100 Oregon Books
In 2005, OCHC compiled "The 100 Oregon Books", a list of books published between 1800 and 2000 that exemplify Oregon's literary heritage. The list was created as part of the centennial celebration of the Oregon State Library.
