The Lummis Autograph Collection contains 1,700 autographs collected by Charles Fletcher Lummis when he was the Los Angeles City Librarian (1905- 1910). Lummis sent a specially-designed piece of library stationery to all the leading men (and some) women of the day, asking them to "improve" the page with a saying, drawing, or other inspiring example of their work. Call the Rare Books Department at (213) 228-7350 for an appointment to view.
