Julius C. Moreland was the Portland City Attorney in 1879, about the time when this portrait was created by Joseph Buchtel. In case you're wondering, yes, the "C" stands for Caesar. Moreland is known most these days as the namesake for the Westmoreland and Eastmoreland neighborhoods in Portland. He began his long career as a teenager working as a printer for the Oregon Farmer, Oregon's first agricultural publication.

Later becoming a lawyer, he served on the Portland City Council, as a judge, and in later life as Clerk of the Oregon Supreme Court. Though he only had a minor role in the real estate developments named for him, he was an executive with the Portland Realty Company in about 1910 when the neighborhoods were platted.
