Biographical Note

Dana Upton Lamb was born in Tustin, California, on January 18, 1901 to John Charles Lamb and Emma Mary Holderman Lamb. J. C. Lamb served as the Orange County Tax Collector for thirty-three years and also raised groves of oranges, lemons and avocados. A 1923 graduate of Santa Ana High School, Dana joined the crews of the steamer W. M. Irish and the S. S. Carenco , traveling to the Eastern United States and Morocco, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Cyprus and Syria in 1924-1925. Active in the Boy Scouts at an early age, Dana Lamb served as field executive for the Orange County Council and as assistant scout executive, Greater Providence Council, Rhode Island, from 1926-1927. He also served as chief of the Laguna Beach lifeguard service, which likely provided him with the training and expertise to begin the Orange County Coast Patrol in the late 1930s.
Virginia Marshall Bishop (later Ginger Lamb) was born in Santa Ana, CA, to watchmaker-optometrist Vernon M. Bishop and Nancy Cutler Bishop on September 22, 1912. The family moved to El Centro, California, shortly following Ginger’s birth but returned to Santa Ana sometime around 1921. She graduated from Santa Ana High School in 1930.
Dana and Ginger married February 19, 1933. In August, they embarked on what became a three year, 16,000 mile voyage in their homemade, sixteen-foot canoe, the Vagabunda, from Southern California down the Pacific coasts of Mexico, Guatemala, and Costa Rica, and culminated in their crossing of the Panama Canal in September 1936. They chronicled their adventures in a book, Enchanted Vagabonds (1938), and went on the lecture circuit to capitalize on the great public interest in their journey and lives as adventurers. They continued their travels in Mexico and Central America during the 1940s, during which time they did some research for the Federal Government as special agents and produced a substantial report titled Report on Mexico in 1943. Their second book, Quest for the Lost City (1951), detailed their continued adventures in the 1940s and was the basis for a feature length film of the same name produced by Sol Lesser in 1954.
Having made the seaside village of Corona del Mar their home base during their years of adventure travel, the growing population explosion in Orange County in the postwar era prompted the Lambs to move to the former mining town of Hillsboro, in the southwestern mountains of New Mexico, in 1962. The Lambs continued to camp and explore Baja California and deliver the occasional lecture, until Ginger Lamb passed away on February 25, 1967. The ensuing years for Dana Lamb were not idle, as he had to deal with the ramifications of a disastrous flood in Hillsboro in September 1972 and traveled to Micronesia in 1975-1976 before his death on June 11, 1979.

Scope and Content of Collection

The collection consists of the personal papers of the adventurers and explorers Dana and Ginger Lamb. The collection contains an extensive amount of material which meticulously documents their travels, personal lives, and family history in the form of diaries, manuscripts, correspondence, financial records, legal documents, maps, photographs and photographic negatives, ephemera and clipping files, and motion picture films.
Of particular note in the collection are the many diaries kept by both Dana and Ginger Lamb, which document not only their various travels and activities at home but also record financial transactions, addresses, and were frequently summarized on an annual basis. The earliest of these begins with Dana Lamb’s 1924-1925 travels about the W. M. Irish and the S. S. Carenco , to the Eastern United States and Morocco, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Cyprus and Syria and ends with the final diary he was keeping at the time of his death in 1979. Ginger Lamb’s diaries are fewer in number, mostly covering travels during the 1930s through the early 1950s.
The collection also contains manuscripts for several of the Lambs’ published works, including drafts of Enchanted Vagabonds and Quest for the Lost City. Their 1943 Report on Mexico is also represented in the collection, including an earlier draft, and various short stories and articles (both published and unpublished) are also in the collection. An extensive amount of correspondence, the bulk of which is from the 1930s through the early 1970s, documents the Lambs’ activities, appointments, and friendships as well as their activities on the lecture circuit, with film industry executives, and with other adventurers. Correspondents of note in the collection include: President and Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Nicaraguan President Anastasio Somoza, J. Edgar Hoover, and Sol Lesser.
Also included in the collection is an extensive amount of photographs (both black and white and color), negatives, and slides. The Lambs took a large amount of photos while traveling, and while many of them are not individually labeled, some photos and negatives were individually numbered and/or labeled by the Lambs, and their identification systems were maintained whenever possible. A large selection of photographs was arranged in several oversize scrapbooks. Along with the still pictures, the collection also contains 256 reels of 16mm motion picture film taken by the Lambs, much of which was filmed from the 1950s to the 1970s.
Other materials in the collection include family papers and photographs, financial records, land records, and contracts. There are also items related to Dana Lamb’s involvement in the Boy Scouts, materials related to aviation, drawings, an extensive array of maps, and items related to the Adventurers’ Club in Los Angeles, California. There are also various printed editions of Enchanted Vagabonds and Quest for the Lost City in a myriad of languages, including Japanese, Spanish and Dutch. The collection also contains materials (correspondence, publicity, and artwork, for example) related to the creation of the 1954 film adaptation of their book, Quest for the Lost City, by Hollywood producer Sol Lesser.
The collection also contains a large amount of artifacts, including the oars of the Vagabunda, Dana and Ginger Lamb’s pith helmets and machetes, a blow gun, and various treasures collected during their journeys.
The collection is in fairly good, stable condition; the exceptions are various documents, photographs and other papers which were affected by water and mud from the 1972 flood in Hillsboro, New Mexico. Many of these have been cleaned or dusted, but some trace evidence of mud and water damage remains.

Collection Contents

 

I. Manuscripts

Scope and Content Note

The Manuscripts series consists of various drafts, fragments, proofs, and completed manuscripts of books, articles and short stories written by Dana and Ginger Lamb. Both handwritten and typewritten, these materials relate to their two published books, Enchanted Vagabonds (1938) and Quest for the Lost City (1951), as well as the unpublished manuscript of a third book titled Wings Over Mission Trails (1970s). At one time Quest for the Lost City had the alternate title of Mayan Vagabonds, and the latter title has been retained in describing the relevant manuscript materials which reflect the use of that earlier title by the Lambs. Several boxes of short stories include some materials which were clearly written as short stories for various magazines and other publications (some of which appear in the Publications series of this collection), and others which may have in fact been chapters or portions of their larger books but were not identified as such in the original arrangement of the collection. A few folders also contain correspondence, drawings, photographs or other materials related to the specific manuscript, and consequently were not separated and placed in other series in the collection. This series also contains the Lambs’s Report on Mexico (1943), submitted to President Roosevelt and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as well as manuscripts by other individuals.
Note: The various drafts of Quest for the Lost City show the effects of water and mud damage due to the 1972 Hillsboro flood and may be difficult for some to read or handle.

II. Diaries

Scope and Content Note

The collection contains four boxes of diaries and notebooks by Dana Lamb, and one box of Ginger Lamb’s diaries. Represented are several volumes documenting the Lamb’s voyage on the Vagabunda from 1933-1936, and there are also some typewritten transcripts of Dana’s diaries from the same journey. Of note in this series is a large diary / scrapbook documenting Dana Lamb’s early travels on the Steamer W.M. Irish and the S.S. Carenco to the Eastern United States, Morocco, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Cyprus and Syria in 1924-1925. This volume contains a handwritten narrative of Dana Lamb’s experiences but also includes drawings, photographs, and ephemera (including paper money). Several of the volumes are more than just diaries per se, as some contain notes, lists, addresses, and expenses. Dana Lamb’s diaries are arranged first, in Boxes 20-23, and Ginger Lamb’s are in Box 24. Within each box, the diaries are arranged in chronological order.
Most of the diaries are handwritten and are in excellent condition, although in some cases the pencil writing is a bit faint and difficult to read. Many of the diaries were originally assembled from small gatherings of paper or notebook paper, and some of these have homemade cardboard covers and were likely kept in Dana Lamb’s tooled leather case found at the end of Box 21 the few bound volumes represented are of the commercial variety.

III. Correspondence

Scope and Content Note

The correspondence series spans the years before 1901 through 1994 and is stored in twenty-seven document boxes. The correspondence is filed first in chronological order by year, or in some cases by decade, then alphabetically by name. In many cases, the Lambs attached copies of their outgoing replies to letters received, and these have been kept together to reflect their organizational system. Occasionally, correspondents sent articles, ephemera or photographs along with their letters or cards, and these items have been kept together as well.
The letters provide a detailed view of the activities and social networks of Dana and Ginger Lamb over several decades. Materials represented include fan mail, business correspondence, and even correspondence between Dana and Ginger from the few occasions when they are away from each other. Of note is a group of letters sent from Dana and Ginger Lamb to their parents during their three year trip on the Vagabunda during the 1930s. Correspondents found in the collection include: June Cleveland (co-author of Enchanted Vagabonds), President and Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Hollywood producer Sol Lesser.

IV. Family Papers

Scope and Content Note

Most of the family papers represented here are of Dana Lamb’s parents, John Charles (J.C.) Lamb and Emma Holderman Lamb. There is a significant amount of correspondence to the Lambs, and this series also contains diaries, financial records, land lease and ownership records, and business records. Of note is the February 14, 1900 marriage license for J.C. and Emma H. Lamb, and many of the materials in this series relate to the Lamb’s social and business activities primarily in Santa Ana, California, and in other portions of Southern California.
There are also materials from and related to the Holderman Family (Dana Lamb’s mother’s family), which span the years 1824-1899 and are by far the oldest, and in some cases, most delicate, items in the collection. Although the documents are not from California, they contain correspondence, legal documents, receipts and ephemera and are representative of common mid-nineteenth century business practices and social life and customs in the United States.

XIV. Film

Scope and Content Note

Dana and Ginger Lamb frequently traveled with one or more motion picture cameras, and they made numerous films. Of these, probably the best known is Quest for the Lost City, produced by Sol Lesser and distributed by RKO Radio Pictures in 1954. Other significant film projects represented in the collection includes Strategic Nicaragua, The Lost Mission of Santa Ysabel, and Dana Lamb’s work in the 1970s on educational and tourism-based films about Micronesia. Several of these films were used as part of the Lambs’ various appearances while on the lecture circuit, and the Lambs also brought some film to share with President and Mrs. Roosevelt during their dinner at the White House in February 1939. As is evident from the extensive lists and inventories concerning their films, the Lambs spent a significant amount of time reviewing, indexing, cutting, and splicing film when they were not on the road.
The materials in this series are in fact the paper-based files (with the exception of a few DVD copies) concerning Dana and Ginger Lamb’s films and film projects; the films themselves are described in more detail in the Visual Materials series of this collection.

E. Visual Materials – Glass Plate Negatives and Lantern Slides

Scope and Content Note

The collection contains 83 glass negatives and 74 lantern slides, early photographic formats on which the images were created on pieces of glass. While fragile, many of these remain in good condition, and the images are quite easy to see. Many of the glass plate negatives are of Dana Lamb and his parents when he was an infant or young child, and they were likely taken in the months and years following his birth in 1901. The lantern slides, most of which are hand-colored and produced by Pacific Stereopticon Company of Los Angeles, California, are mostly color images of the Lambs’ canoe trip on the Vagabunda between 1933-1936.

F. Visual Materials – Rolled negatives

Scope and Content Note

These 35mm negatives, most of which are black and white, were kept in small metal film canisters by the Lambs for decades, and as a result they remain in a rolled format today. The labels on the metal canisters, transcribed below, are often abbreviated and somewhat cryptic, but they do provide some information about the images in each group of negatives.

G. Visual Materials – Motion Picture Films

Scope and Content Note

In addition to their extensive arsenal of still pictures to document their explorations and adventures, the Lambs also employed the use of motion picture films to record their activities and journeys. Some of the earliest films in the collection are from their canoe trip in 1933-1936, but most, although undated, were likely from the 1940s and 1950s and into the 1970s. These films were shown by the Lambs during their lecture tours, to friends at home, and much of their footage was used in the creation of the 1955 feature-length film, Quest for the Lost City. Most of the films are in good condition, many were labeled or well identified, and quite a few have descriptive summaries, scene lists or notes regarding their contents.
Each of the films has been assigned an identification number, and they are arranged and described by their size.
In some cases, there is a break in the numbering sequence of the films, and there is a group of nine small unidentified films which were not numbered. In some cases, evidence of a common type of film deterioration often detected through smell, known as vinegar syndrome, is apparent, and the inventory records those demonstrating this characteristic odor.
Of the films in the collection, only five are available for viewing on DVD format in the library: one is the Sol Lesser Film, Quest for the Lost City (1954), which is found in box 73 (Film series: Quest for the Lost City ). The restoration and transfer of the remaining four films was funded by the National Film Preservation Foundation, which awarded a preservation partnership grant to the Sherman Library in 2008. The restoration and transfer work was completed in March 2009. These four films are: three color canoe trip out takes (#10, #38, #285) and the unnumbered black and white nitrate film which was possibly shot at the end of the trip on the Vagabunda in Panama.
