Biography

Lillian Estelle Fisher was born May 1, 1891 in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. She attended Susquehanna University, and after graduation taught at a Methodist Normal School for Girls in Puebla, Mexico. Fisher received degrees from the University of Southern California and the University of California, Berkeley, and taught at the Oklahoma College for Women for 15 years. An academic historian who specialized in Latin America, Dr. Fisher wrote approximately a dozen books on Latin American history. She also completed several books on Mexican history begun by Herbert Ingram Priestley, a professor at Berkeley, before his death in 1944. Following her retirement to Berkeley, Calif., she also wrote several novels which were never published.

Scope and Content

The Lillian Estelle Fisher Research Materials relating to Mexico consist of transcriptions from documents housed in the Archivo General de Indias in Spain and in the Archivo General de la Nacion in Mexico city. The materials from Spain relate to the policies adopted by the Spanish government in the late 18th century in order to regulate the trade between the colonies and the metropolis, as well as the trade amongst the colonies. The largest section of the collection (32 of the 47 folders), which comprises the materials from the AGN, consists of transcriptions of documents from the ramo "Tierras" and primarily relates to lawsuits, measurement, sales, and restitution of Indian lands.
