The Turbesé Lummis Fiske and Frances Douglas papers are mostly personal documents, with some manuscripts and realia, spanning
from 1890-1967. They include the papers of Henry Herbert Knibbs from 1929-1945, and include correspondence from, to, and about
Charles Fletcher Lummis.
Turbesé Lummis Fiske (June 8, 1892-May 1967) was the daughter of Charles Fletcher Lummis, an anthropologist, writer, photographer,
editor of the Los Angeles Times, "Land of Sunshine" and "Out West" magazines and the founder of the Southwest Museum. Fiske
was an author in her own right, editing some of her father's texts and later acting as editor and collaborator with author
Henry Herbert Knibbs. Her literary works were published in journals such as the
L.A. Times and
Ladies' Home Journal. Some of her plays were produced by local theater companies.
