Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection consists of one journal written in French and English by Fernando Dutilleul to his mother. It contains an essay on the history of the San Diego Mission and numerous drawings of the plant and bird life of Mission Valley, California.
In 1912, Fernando Dutilleul walked through Mission Valley, California. He made sketches of local plant and bird life and wrote down notes on their environment. He supplemented his walks with research at the public library, and wrote and illustrated an essay on the history and discovery of the San Diego Mission. He was particularly interested in the daily life of the mission and the relationship between the missionaries and their “Indian converts.”
