The 1930 US Federal Census for Portand, Multnomah, Oregon records 30-year-old, Kansas-born Claude F Palmer, his 29-year-old, Oregon-born wife Helen G [Marrley] Palmer and their 4-year 4-month-old daughter Elizabeth J Palmer. The family is living at 36 E 44th in a house that Claude owns, worth $6,500. They have a radio. Claude was 23- and Helen 22-years-old when they married [abt 1923]. Claude is a commercial photographer with his own business [founder of Photo Art Commercial Studios, Inc. in Portland, Oregon]. He was at work the day before the census was taken. He is a veteran of WWI. Helen is a housewife. Claude and Helen are literate and speak English. Claude's father was born in Indiana and his mother in Iowa. Helen's father was born in Indiana and her mother in Ohio. Elizabeth's father was born in Kansas and her mother in Oregon.

The 1940 US Federal Census for Portand, Multnomah, Oregon records 40-year-old, Kansas-born Claude F Palmer, his 39-year-old, Oregon-born wife Helen G [Marrley] Palmer and their 14-year-old daughter Elizabeth Palmer. This family is living at 324 South East 44th Ave in a house that Claude owns, worth $5,000. They were living in the same house in 1935. Claude and Helen have completed four years of college. Elizabeth has completed one year of high school. Claude is a commercial photographer who owns his own studio. He has worked 72 hours in the past week and 50 weeks in the past year. He receives no salary as he owns the business and therefore that counts as an outside source of income. Helen is a housewife, and Elizabeth is a student. Neither are looking for work.
