House Corporation Report 2008
By Clint Stubbs, President
I hope all is well with each of you and that this finds you before Founders Day. I started this article in
October of last year, and things have changed so fast that I was never able to finish it. I hope most of you
have heard through the grapevine of the many events that Oregon Beta had to deal with last year.
The Loss of a Friend and Brother The Boiler Explosion, November 15, 2008
To begin with, I want to make sure everyone knows that on
October 14, 2008, we lost one of our beloved brothers in Phi
Kappa Psi. Jack Price, ’85-484, was killed in an accident. The
Corvallis Gazette Times reported: “Jack Price II, 43, of
Beaverton, was at the corner of Northwest 14th Street and
Northwest Van Buren Avenue when his older model red pickup
stalled. Witnesses say he got out of the
truck and was standing in front of it
when he reached into the engine com-
partment, apparently attempting to re-
start the vehicle. The truck suddenly re-
started, surged forward and ran him
over, pinning him underneath.”
Shortly after being taken to Good Sa-
maritan Regional Medical Center, Jack
succumbed to his injuries.
Jack’s tragic death came at the end of the best summer

list to see if anything needs to be added, and to prepare some
cost estimates. We also have an architect and structural engi-
neer looking into necessary code upgrades that the city will
require. We hope this information will all come together soon,
so the insurance company can provide us with the amount it
will pay for the loss.
At this time, it looks like we will rebuild the north wing and
remodel the south wing. We are looking into the possibility of
adding additional rooms in a second and possibly third floor
in the north wing. We are also planning on a major remodel to
the south wing. The goal is that the finished house will look
brand new in all areas. The south wing will need a new fire
sprinkler system, heating, electrical, plumbing, new windows,
new doors, etc.
The catch, of course, is that the insurance money will not
be enough to build the house that we will need for the next 50
years at Oregon State. The board is committed to not skimp-
