A collection of letters (1900-1925)
written to Los Angeles City Librarian Charles Fletcher Lummis.
Charles Fletcher Lummis (1859-1828) was a journalist, editor, author, ethnologist,
archaeologist, poet, builder, and photographer. He was editor of the magazine The land of
sunshine (later titled, Out west), founded the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles in 1903, and
served as librarian of the Los Angeles Public Library from 1905 to 1910. Lummis was a
staunch advocate for Native Americans, and he established the Sequoya League in 1901 to
further this cause.
