Background
Lillian Estelle Fisher was born May 1, 1891 in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. She attended Susquehanna University, and after graduation taught at a Methodist Normal School for Girls in Puebla, Mexico. Fisher received degrees from the University of Southern California and the University of California, Berkeley, and taught at the Oklahoma College for Women for 15 years. An academic historian who specialized in Latin America, Dr. Fisher wrote approximately a dozen books on Latin American history. She also completed several books on Mexican history begun by Herbert Ingram Priestley, a professor at Berkeley, before his death in 1944. Following her retirement to Berkeley, Calif., she also wrote several novels which were never published.
