Historical Note

The first Westerners Corral was established in Chicago in 1944 with the aim of promoting the study and understanding of Western history. Soon, corrals were springing up all over the United States-- and even internationally-- with the Los Angeles corral being established in 1946 by oil executive Homer Britzman--who also was elected founding Sheriff. The last remaining founding member, Glen Dawson, was one of the L.A. Corral's early Sheriffs and was a well-known rock climber, mountaineer, antiquarian bookseller (Dawson's Bookshop in Los Angeles, founded by his father Ernest Dawson), and also served as Director of the Sierra Club from 1937 to 1951. The Los Angeles Corral of the Westerners regularly convenes to hear historians and other speakers present western-related topics as well as to celebrate the western spirit through annual Rendezvous and Fandangos. The Corral has published 22 Brand Books, almost 250 Branding Irons, and numerous other publications. Originally restricted to men, the organization now welcomes and encourages women to participate in the Corral.

Scope and Content

This collection contains the records of the Los Angeles Corral of the Westerners, including correspondence pertaining to Westerner activities, membership and publications, financial records, the publication records of works published by the group, audiocassettes and DVDs of Westerner programs and lectures, and scrapbooks of photographs of Westerner events. The publication records for the Branding Iron (a quarterly periodical), the Brand Book (an annual or bi-annual monograph length publication) and Keepsakes (irregular publications) include correspondence with authors, drafts of articles including art, floppy and zip disks, and proofs. Artifacts found in the collection include printing plates and a plaque. One of the larger series, the John W. Robinson collection, is comprised of Robinson's subject files, maps, and photographs-- many of which served as research for a number of books that he authored.

Arrangement

Within series, records are generally arranged in chronological order. Whenever possible, files that were the provenance of individual members were kept together with their original file headings, although sometimes spelled out more completely for clarity.

Financial Records

Scope and Contents

Much of this original series was returned to the Westerners due to possible sensitive financial information (i.e. personal checks), and its lack of relevancy to the organization's records as a whole. Banking statements, expense records, and treasurers' reports are part of this series and reflect some of the business activities of the organization.

"Branding Iron" Publication Records 1947-2013

Scope and Contents

The Branding Iron is the quarterly historical publication of the Los Angeles Corral of The Westerners. It began in 1947 as The Brand Book, but after five issues was re-named The Branding Iron. It features articles on the history of Los Angeles, Southern California, and the West, along with book reviews, and news about the Corral and its members. Many of the articles were written by noted scholars and local historians. The early numbering is not consecutive because other Corral publications including some Keepsakes, were originally included along with the quarterly. Like the Brand Books series, this series is comprised of the publications themselves, along with correspondence and sales information related to its publishing.

Photographs 1948-2009

Scope and Contents

This rather large series is comprised of a few formal portraits of Westerner personalities, but the bulk of it is candid "activity" photographs of Westerners at various fandangos, rendezvous, field trips, etc. Many of the photographs were credited to Ken Pauley, Glen Dawson, Frank Q. Newton, Jr., and Iron Eyes Cody-- but most of the photographs were not labeled with the names of the photographer. The subseries of slides appear to all have been the provenance of Frank Q. Newton, Jr. who also kept detailed logbooks of his images with technical photography/ camera data. Additional photographs are in scrapbooks in the Scrapbooks series.

Westerners Publications 1947-2012

Scope and Contents

The chief publication of the L.A. Corral is the Brand Book, of which there are twenty-two as of 2015. The published hard-bound copies are in this series, along with a few other works published by the society. Also of interest is a book authored by Nicholas A. Curry and Stuart F. Robinson titled Glen Dawson at 100 (2012), Dawson being one of the earliest founders of the L.A. Corral. Like his father, Ernest Dawson, Glen was a mountain climber, antiquarian bookseller, publisher, historian, and Sierra Club president. In 1990, Glen Dawson was instrumental in assisting the FBI with the conviction of Stephen Blumberg, a thief who had compulsively stolen rare books from at least 327 libraries. As an expert witness, he testified for the U.S. Government at Blumberg's trial that 271 items taken from the Connecticut State Library were worth over $225,000. Dawson is a resident of Pasadena, California, and celebrated his 100th birthday in June 2012.

Scope and Contents

The materials in this series are grouped together due to physical format. The DVDs and audiocassette tapes are primarily of speaker presentations at monthly meetings or "round-ups." The CDs are chiefly of images and text used in the Branding Iron and other publications. Most of the titles were copied just as they appear on the tapes or disks, unless there was an obvious spelling error that could be corrected.

John W. Robinson Files

Biographical Note

John W. Robinson, a prominent western historian and mountaineer, was born in Long Beach, California in 1929. He received his B.A. from the University of Southern California in 1951 and his M.A. from California State University, Long Beach in 1966. He taught school in Orange County for 35 years and was well-known for his trail guides and histories of the mountains of Southern California. In 1992, Robinson received the Donald H. Pfluegar Award from the Historical Society of Southern California, for excellence in writing local history. For best journal articles in 1990 and 1994, he received the Westerners International "Coke" Wood award which recognizes outstanding monographs or articles based on individual research, personal knowledge, or family records. In 2005, the Historical Society of Southern California presented Robinson with the Fellows Award medallion, honoring "exceptional lifetime achievements that have brought distinction to history."

Scope and Contents

This series consists of the large collection of research files that Robinson maintained and used in the writing of his many books and trail guides. The subject files are comprised of articles, drafts, news clippings, and some photographs kept in their original arrangement which was basically geographical. The collection of photographs in this series is also organized by geographic region, the bulk of them being of the San Bernardino Mountains and the San Gabriel Mountains. The third subseries consists of a collection of maps-- folded road maps as well as large rolled maps-- chiefly of Southern California, but also encompassing some areas of Northern California (i.e. Yosemite) and other areas of the country (Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, etc.)
