Provisional Government (1843-1848)

Meetings at Champoeg led up to the first constitution of the Oregon Country, and several petitions for U.S. territorial status. The resulting acts also created this body as a provisional government for the region. The first executives of this government were a three-person, elected committee known as the Executive Committee. In 1845, elections for a chief executive were held. The first person in Oregon to hold the title of governor was George Abernethy, a prominent businessman. The Champoeg Meetings in Oregon Country were the first attempts at governing in the Pacific Northwest by United States European-American pioneers. ...

U.S. Territorial Governors (1848-1859)

Oregon became a U.S. Territory in 1848. Like most other U.S. territorial governments, Oregon's territorial governor was appointed by the President of the United States. As transportation and communications were not as reliable and fast as today's methods, there were times when a departing governor left office, but a new governor could not yet take over. This resulted in several local individuals acting as territorial governor until the new executive was appointed and arrived to take office.

Governors Of Oregon - Photographs (864 words)
Governor Abernethy was one of eight members of the unincorporated Oregon Exchange Company which coined the famous Beaver money-$5 and SIO gold pieces needed during the scarcity of American currency in the territory.
When Governor Joseph Lane (appointed by President Polk to be the Governor of the new territory) arrived on Oregon March 3, 1849, he issued a proclamation giving official notice of the change and then sent a letter to Governor Abernethy inviting him to call.
But the provisional Governor (as Carey's History tells it) "with a nice sense of the proprieties, indicated in a dignified manner that he would be glad to receive Governor Lane should the latter call to pay his respects." Thus the provisional Governor took care of the protocol until his successor was regularly sworn in.
