AUTO DEALERSHIP FOUNDED IN ASTORIA BY LINFIELDER DAVE LUM BUYS McMINNVILLE'S LARSEN MOTOR CO.


Dave Lum, Linfield Class of 1958, is well known in the business world for success with Lum's Auto Center he and three partners founded (as Toyota of Astoria) in 1969 in his hometown Astoria, Oregon.

(In the 1990s that four-way partnership ended and the Lums are the dealership sole owners.)
Dave and wife, Shirley -- married Aug. 17, 1958 -- are known for their community commitment and community service to Astoria and Clatsop County and its citizens.

Lum's Auto Center is now under the leadership of Dave and Shirley's daughters Lori, Julie and Pam.

The Auto Center is now located in Warrenton, about six miles from Astoria.

An outstanding athlete at Astoria High School (Class of 1952), Dave attended Linfield with aspiration to be a teacher and coach. His Linfield student activities included playing football (quarterback), basketball and golf for the Wildcats. 

After graduating from Linfield he taught and coached at eastern Oregon's Echo High School in Umatilla County. Echo is about 22 miles from Pendleton. 

Later he left teaching/coaching and was in the insurance business and car sales in Portland. This was all before moving back to Astoria and opening the auto dealership.

In late 2018 Lum’s purchased McMinnville's Larsen Motor Co. (See story below from McMinnville News-Register) It will be renamed Lum Motor Co.

Larsen Motors sold to Warrenton car dealer family

By David Bates, McMinnville N-R, Dec 13, 2018, online, Dec 14, 2018 print

Larsen Motor Company, one of McMinnville’s oldest family-owned businesses, has handed the keys over to new owners, ending a 78-year run in the car-selling business that grew out of a downtown service station in the 1930s.

Brothers Scott and Allan Larsen, who assumed command of the dealership from their father Herm Larsen around 1980, said Wednesday they’ve sold their General Motors franchise to the car dealership family of David Lum of Warrenton.
Lum, who acquired his teaching degree from Linfield College, has operated Lum’s Toyota in the Clatsop County city near Astoria for half a century. It is now run by his daughters, Lori, Julie and Pam Lum. Lori is the new principal owner, and Pam Lum will move to the area to assume the role of operating manager.

“We are honored to acquire this franchise from the Larsen brothers who are so deeply rooted in the McMinnville area.” We are so excited to be part of this wonderful community.”

The family is also transferring a sales manager of 28 years, George Kurns, who will be the McMinnville dealership’s new general manager.

The sale was brokered by Performance Brokerage Service, a California-based company, and on Wednesday the signing of the official papers made the transaction final.

“They’re being signed as we speak, that’s what’s happening today,” Scott Larsen said. “We spent our time today with the Lums and the banks and General Motors. The Lums officially take over at 6 o’clock tonight.”

“It’s quite a day,” said Allan Larsen, the elder son of Herm, who died in 1996. “My brother and I, and our father of course, before, basically spent our working lives here, and this is the 78th year that we’ve been in business in McMinnville.

“It’s going to be a really big change for us, but we’re really happy with the people that are coming behind us,” he said. “We think they’re going to be great for McMinnville, we really do. It’s a good family, and very community-minded and employee- and customer-minded so the place is going to be in good hands.”

Larsen Motor Company’s story began in the 1930s when Herm Larsen went to work for Gale Vinton at a Shell station on the corner of Third and Baker streets. In 1940, they formed a partnership to sell Buick cars and GMC trucks. The company later moved east to the parking lot area across from Macy & Son’s Funeral Directors, before moving to its current location at 830 N.E. Highway 99W in 1958.

Scott Larsen recalled when he and Allan were young and would wash cars and handle other odd jobs at the dealership during the summers. After attending college, they returned to McMinnville to take over the family business.

Both said it’s too early to know what retirement holds. Allan plans to spend more time at home for a while, but intends to remain active in the community and perhaps travel.

“We just need a break for a little while to find that out,” Scott Larsen said. “My plan is not to stay home and watch TV, I can tell you that.”

The business, which employs about 30 people, will become Lum Motor Company. A grand re-opening is likely at some point, Scott said.

Lum featured in Time ad

(Source: Linfield Magazine, Summer 2009)

David Lum ’58 could have sold timber cleared for his new car dealership in Warrenton for several thousand dollars. Instead, he donated the 12 spruce trees to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to help restore habitat for coho salmon and other fish on Hawley Creek, a tributary of the Necanicum River.

“In the old days they used to clean up fallen trees from streams,” Lum said, “but they found the salmon couldn’t hatch. It was not environmentally friendly. So they’ve got to put trees back in and make places where they can lay eggs without them washing away.”

Lum’s stream-restoration contribution was described in a full-page ad in the Sept. 1 Time magazine. The ad notes that he received the Toyota President’s Award for the fourth year in 2008. The award recognizes not only outstanding sales and service, but also community involvement.

Besides Toyota/Scion, the Lums sell Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, GMC, GM and Pontiac products. Lum officially retired eight years ago, and his two daughters now run Lum’s Auto Center.

Recently Lum attended his 50-year Linfield reunion. “I’m so proud to be a Linfield graduate,” he said. “In my self-assessment I wasn’t college material, but I got through Linfield because I got a lot of help. I’m a motivation for all my classmates,” he joked. “Life isn’t about how much money you have – it’s about friends and family, and you can learn more from Linfield than any other school I can think of. It teaches you more than the basics – you get an appreciation of life and health and everything else."

July 30, 2012, Astorian about Astoria High School Class of 1952 members:

=We had a great football team,” said classmate David Lum, owner of Lum’s Auto Center in Warrenton, who played quarterback behind fellow class member Jerry Gustafson.”

July 30, 2012, Astorian:

=Lum’s father emigrated from China in 1904, and his mother was an American-born Chinese from California. His parents owned Lum Grocery Store on Sixth and Bond streets. As the youngest of six siblings, Lum said his parents sacrificed a lot for them.

=“The kids of my class were under the same scenario that I was. There were no well-off families. We were all not even blue-collar. So the adversity I overcame, all my classmates did too,” he said. “Everybody lived on the skinny. ... I remember going to someone’s house and eating beans. That’s the way it was. I mean, I didn’t think anyone was poor – we didn’t know.”

=After high school, Lum attended Linfield College. For Lum, 1958 was a big year: he graduated from college in the spring, got married in the summer and started teaching in the fall.

=He spent three years at Echo High School, near Pendleton, teaching classes in typing and math as well as coaching sports teams. But it was difficult to support a growing family on a teacher’s salary.

=“There was adversity, and I overcame it,” he said simply, preferring not to focus on it. “I can tell you, the struggle to get a job, and in 1963 they had to hire minorities, but why talk about it?”

=A self-professed believer in lifelong learning, Lum changed careers, spending the next seven years in Portland selling insurance and cars.

=“To be good in any profession, you have to keep going,” he said.

=In 1969 Lum moved back to Astoria and founded Lum’s Auto Center in Warrenton with three partners. The partners split in the 1990s, and Lum has remained in the Astoria area, where his three daughters, all graduates of AHS, help run the auto center. He and his wife have four children and 10 grandchildren.

=“I mainly brought my kids back here because I always was so accepted here,” Lum said of returning to his hometown.

=In 2010 Lum’s Auto Center received Excellence in Family Business awards by Oregon State University. Lum was the 2011 recipient of the Astoria-Warrenton Chamber of Commerce’s George Award, and he has helped develop the Astoria Riverfront Trolley and contributed to the renovations of the Astoria Column.=iri

April 1, 2010 Astorian:

=Most people know David Lum as the founder of the successful Toyota dealership and family business Lum's Auto in Warrenton.

=If you stop by the dealership these days, you might catch a glimpse of this gracious entrepreneur, with his loyal dachshund, Clara, always by his side.

=Lum retired about a decade ago, but still keeps an office in the building. His three daughters Julie, Lori and Pamela help run the business these days.

=But while Lum's prosperous dealership has become a Warrenton fixture, his family's roots go way back in the Astoria community, where his auto dealership also began.

Lum, the youngest of six children, was born in Astoria in 1933 at the hospital on 16th Street which is now the site of Clatsop Care Center. His family ran the Lum Quing Grocery store for many years, a business that was formerly located at Bond and 6th streets in Astoria. That building later became the site of Lum's Auto dealership, and more recently housed a cell phone dealer.

=Lum graduated from Astoria High School and attended Linfield College. He said his mother, whom he referred to as a "pillar" of the Baptist church in =Astoria, has been a big influence in his life, reinforcing his values and insisting that he get an education.

=By 1958, Lum had graduated from college, married his wife Shirley, and was teaching at Echo High School near Hermiston, Ore. A few years later the couple moved to Portland, and he embarked on a career in a field he felt drawn to - the world of business.

="I enjoy sales," Lum said. "I'm a people person."

=He sold cars and insurance before ultimately opening his own Toyota dealership in Astoria in 1969.

=Over 40 years later, Lum's is now located in a new, elegant Toyota auto center in Warrenton near Home Depot.

=During his career, Lum has been honored with numerous awards. Perhaps the best known is the Time Magazine Quality Dealer Award, a prestigious honor in the auto sales industry. He received the award in 2006.

=Lum said he's been fortunate to have done well in business over the years, and noted that retirement has turned out to be different from what he imagined.

="All my life I thought one of these days I'd like to do nothing," he said. "But then you retire and after two or three months you think, 'What am I doing?'"

=Lum's daughter Pamela, who stopped by during the interview, pointed to a "to do" list on her dad's desk that includes some intensive projects - among them learning Chinese and Spanish. Despite his family's long Chinese heritage in the region, he never learned the language.

=Lum shared four important keys to success that have served him well:

="Do what you're told, stay out of trouble," he said, referring to his family's tradition of honoring parents' guidance for their children. "Then arrive early and stay late."

=Lum has certainly done all of these things in his life, especially the arriving early and staying late part, as he methodically built his business from startup to successful enterprise.

=He continues to be involved in issues at the dealership and elsewhere.

="I still feel that I'm not through with my life," Lum said. "Everyone wants to feel needed and valued. There is lots more to learn."

David Lum named Regatta admiral

Story in May 21, 2004 Astorian:

The Astoria Regatta Association announces this year's 2004 Admiral - David Lum.

Lum's personal and professional commitment to the Regatta and the city has insured that the Regatta continues as the longest running festival west of the Mississippi. The Regatta will celebrate its 110th year this August 10 through 15. This year's theme "A Journey to Remember" lends itself to the Lewis and Clark journey on the Columbia River and to Lum's long journey of support for the Regatta. It is with great pleasure the association can now add Admiral David Lum to the Regatta history books.

Lum is a true native Astorian. He was born in Astoria and is a graduate of Astoria High School. He then attended Linfield College and upon graduation, became a high school teacher and coach in Echo.

He married Shirley Lee.

In 1969, they moved back to Astoria to raise a growing family and start an automobile business. Currently, Lum is the owner of Lum's Auto Center, which includes franchises of Toyota, Scion, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, GMC and Pontiac. His growing family comprises of his wife of over 45 years, four children, six grandchildren with seven more on the way.

Lum's professional achievements included being the president of the Oregon Auto Dealers Association; a member of the Board of Directors of the N.W. Toyota Dealers Association; past president of the Astoria Chamber of Commerce; and received the Minority Business Family of the Year award in 2000 from Oregon State University.

He is a member of the Astoria First Baptists Church, the Astoria Country Club and the Elks, Eagles and Moose lodges.


--An Associated Press story in the Sept. 1, 1959 Oregonian reported that Dave Lum was hired as Echo High School's basketball and baseball coach.


--In its Oct. 2, 1955, edition, the Oregonian said Dave Lum threw a second period 12-yard touchdown pass to Jim Cousin to help Linfield's JV football team beat George Fox, 13-7.

LINFIELD MUST ATTRACT MORE STUDENTS, PRESIDENT SAYS


By Starla Pointer
Staff Writer, McMinnville News-Register 
Dec 6, 2018  

Linfield College has a critical need to increase its enrollment, President Miles Davis told a crowd of employees and students at a community forum on Friday.

He described a nationwide trend of decreasing college and university enrollment and, in some cases, withering support for the idea of higher education.

Since Linfield, a private school, depends on tuition and fees to pay the bills, enrollment is critical, he said. This year, declines led to a $3 million shortfall.

“We can’t keep spending the endowment” to make up differences like that, Davis said.

He reiterated how Linfield must make a multi-pronged effort to market the college and recruit and retain students. Some strategies are in process, like focusing on first-generation students, and redoubling recruiting efforts aimed at transfers and non-traditional students.

He’s been welcomed when he visits community colleges, he said, and he is eager to persuade students to go on to Linfield. “They’re good people,” said Davis, noting he started at a community college himself.

In addition, he said, Linfield is working on attracting more diverse students. The number of students who are white and middle class is shrinking, but there is great potential for recruiting students of color, he said. Already, Latino students represent 17 percent of the enrollment.

When a student asked about Linfield’s efforts to raise cultural awareness and decrease harassment -- which she said she’d suffered -- Davis told her that those are priority issues. “It’s the right thing to do,” as well as good for the college, he said.

He invited the student to participate on Linfield’s new bias response team.

“Please don’t leave” Linfield, he implored her.

Davis discussed a wide range of other topics, from finances to Linfield’s continuing commitment to the liberal arts, during the hour-long forum in Ice Auditorium on campus. A direct video feed let people on the Portland campus listen and ask questions, like their counterparts in McMinnville.

At the outset of the forum, the president said he wanted to provide an opportunity to air concerns and to address rumors, such as recent speculation that the college will cut positions or eliminate programs.

Between the McMinnville and Portland campuses and the Office of Continuing Education, which attracts adults who work while attending classes, the college in 2017-18 had 162 faculty members, not counting adjuncts, and 430 other employees, ranging from administrators to groundskeepers.

Davis, who joined Linfield in July, said the budget for 2019-20 has not been drawn up yet, so no decisions have been finalized. Programs growing and attracting students will be supported; others, in which enrollment is declining, need to be critically analyzed.

Every year, he said, the administration considers the potential for serving students represented by each department. Then the president has to present a balanced budget plan to the Board of Trustees based on realistic projections for revenues and costs.

If growth were projected annually at 10 percent for the next five years, he said, that would “get us back to where we were” before enrollment started to decline.

He likened the process to gardening: “To grow, we often have to cut. There’s no contradiction. We have to decide what’s useful to the growth of the body as a whole.”

Davis said representatives of all areas of the college have formed a cabinet to discuss potential budget items. They will be meeting several times before the budget is finalized in early 2019.

A few of those present at the forum said later that they had received early retirement offers. College officials confirmed such offers were made in November to an undisclosed number of employees based on their years of service and proximity to retirement age.

Those employees have until early January to decide, so the college won’t know how the offers will affect the budget until then.

Asked about the next 10 years, Davis said his long-range vision includes stable finances for the college, improved branding and marketing, flourishing enrollment and a new science facility — a capital campaign for the latter is underway.

He also wants to expand into graduate programs and increase Linfield’s online presence. In addition, he wants to continue to “seek to attract and retain the most qualified faculty” as well as quality students, who are “at the heart and soul” of the college.

Drawing laughter, Davis said he wants to change Oregon’s landscape so drivers will see signs everywhere promoting Linfield, rather than George Fox.

In the short term, enrollment declines are driving concerns. Linfield, like schools across the nation, is suffering from a societal shift in the way higher education is delivered and considered.

Some people are questioning the need for higher ed. Others, largely those who look at it as simply job training, think it can be better delivered by for-profit schools. And many students are choosing community colleges or online programs, rather than residential schools, due to costs alone.

Like many schools, Linfield has seen enrollment decline. But other institutions are worse off: 106 schools across the country have closed in the last few years; seven in 2018.

So belt-tightening is necessary, Davis said. “We’ve had to postpone some hiring to stop the bleeding,” he said.

Linfield has not filled the position of vice president for enrollment services, which has been empty since mid-summer. Instead, the president is overseeing those duties.

To save additional dollars, he said, he is proposing handling data analysis in-house, rather than hiring an expensive outside company to examine enrollment trends, recruiting and financial aid packages. In-house analysis also could be more relevant to Linfield’s particular needs and strengths, he said.

On the positive side, Davis said, this is a time of great opportunities.

Linfield just purchased the University of Western States campus in Portland, which in 2020 will become the new home of the Linfield-Good Samaritan School of Nursing.

Davis said nursing school graduates now represent 44 percent of those who receive degrees. The new facilities will provide expansion in Linfield enrollment and its range of health-related fields of study.

He observed how Linfield could become the go-to school for training nurse practitioners and physician assistants, as well as registered nurses.

He’s open to all ideas, he said, but he’s already ruled out two types of graduate programs.

“I wouldn’t launch a law school or an MBA,” said Davis, who was dean of the business school at Shenandoah University in Virginia before coming to Linfield.

There may be more specific programs Linfield could offer successfully, though, he said.

In addition to its cabinet reviewing budget items, the college also has formed an academic innovation council. Its members — faculty, deans and other members of the staff — will examine ideas that could draw students.

When someone asked about the potential for summer programs, Davis quipped, “We’re giving thought to everything. Nothing, from my perspective, is off the table.”

Linfield may eventually have more programs that combine liberal arts and professional studies, as the bachelor’s degree in nursing does.

But it will not lose its essential focus on the liberal arts entirely, Davis said, defining “liberal arts” as “reasoning, history and citizenship ... to function as a citizen in society.”

MORE THAN 20 YEARS AGO, LINFIELDER ART LARRANCE TOOK A GAMBLE (Oregonian story Dec. 6, 2018)


Cascade Brewing at 20: How Portland's sour-beer house became the gold standard

By Andre Meunier  Oregonian Dec 6, 2018

(Story by Oregonian. Photo by Wildcatville.)

A little more than 20 years ago, Art Larrance took a gamble. The craft-beer veteran and entrepreneur crunched some numbers, took a look and thought, this might work -- barely, but it might.

And with that, Cascade Brewing was born. In short time, the Portland brewery would become widely hailed as a pioneer of the Northwest-style sour beer movement and a tourist destination for those coming to partake in the city's renowned beer scene. In 2010 the brewery expanded to inner Southeast Portland with the opening of the Cascade Brewing Barrel House.

Friday, Larrance and Cascade will celebrate the brewery's 20th anniversary with a party from 5 to 10 p.m. at its Lodge at Cascade Brewing restaurant, once known as the Raccoon Lodge and Brewpub, on Southwest Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway. The event is open to the public and will feature games, raffles, food and beer.

Larrance -- a 74-year-old who is one of the pioneers of Portland craft beer industry, co-founding Portland Brewing Co. in 1986 and the Oregon Brewers Festival in 1988 -- and his brewing team will be on hand to greet the public and release 750ml bottles of Bourbonic Plague, a popular Cascade beer not bottled in seven years.

We sat down with Larrance this week and asked him about his life, Cascade Brewing and the Portland beer culture. His answers have been edited for brevity and clarity.

Cascade Brewing

The Den at The Lodge at Cascade Brewing, 7424 S.W. Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway, will host the brewery's 20th anniversary celebration Friday night. Those 21 and older are welcome in the Den for the event, and children are welcome in the restaurant upstairs.
What was the Portland beer scene like back in the '80s, when you and the other pioneers kicked this thing off?

"In the early days you had to go explain what a microbrew was. People didn't talk about hops. They didn't know about hops. No one could talk about IBUs or Cascade hops, at least the consumers couldn't. That's one of the big things I've seen as our market has matured, is that people's palates have matured, their vocabulary has matured. They have a much better understanding.

"Portland Brewing was the fourth brewery to get off the ground in Portland, after McMenamins, BridgePort, then Widmer. They all opened up in the latter part of '84 or '85; we did our first brew on Jan. 15, 1986."

(This is a photo cutline: “Art Larrance stands in front of Linfield College's 1966 baseball NAIA National Champions banner, which hangs at The Lodge at Cascade Brewing. Larrance, a Linfield alumnus, was the catcher on that team and caught the final out to win the championship -- a pop-up straight over home plate. Photo from the Oregonian is NOT included with this article.” However, a photo by Wildcatville is included.)

"People say, why did it take off in Oregon? One, we have good water. Another reason are the people from back then, the intelligence of our restaurant and tavern owners. We had to go into places and add taps, because they only had a few taps. So, in the early days we ran a lot of beer lines, trying to figure out how to get another keg in the cooler. 

Also, I give a lot of credit to our consumers. Oregonians like to patronize people they know, their local people. They'll give you a chance. From what I've been told, that's different than say on the East Coast. Oregonians want to try something new."

Why did you start a sour house, and did you think it would work as well as it has?

"We were looking for a way to get a niche in the market, do something no one else was doing. I didn't want to play the hop wars, which were just getting started. We are the kind of company that if people are going to the right, we are going to go to the left. We're the knuckleheads who wanted to do something different. But everyone has taste buds. When we came along people said, "This doesn't taste like Bud." But it's not supposed to! It's got flavor, taste and aroma. People know the difference. They can taste the difference.

"But this is very capital intensive, as you have to hold the beer for a year or year and a half. It's riskier, which is why you don't see more people in it. But it's given us a chance to stand out from the crowd, and now we sell in 40 states and 12 countries."

"I didn't expect this, though. I bought the barrel house in '09 at the bottom of the market, and I have people come up to me now and go, "I didn't want to say anything then, but I didn't think you were doing the right thing." But the numbers to me said it would work, and it pays the rent, it pays the bills, then a little more. A lot of people who come to Portland, we're on the tourist trail, so depending on the season up to 60 percent of our business is tourist.

"But yeah, I was surprised when we really took off. It blew me away when all that happened. ... No guts no glory, I guess."
