Series 2 Political Activities 1936-1964

Physical Description: 29 folders

Scope and Content Note

Political Activities" consists of correspondence, election broadsides, mailers, radio speeches, brochures and pamphlets, and photographs. It provides insights into local and state politics; especially revealing are the materials on the strategy, issues, and political alliances of John Dockweiler's campaigns for governor in 1938 and for Los Angeles District Attorney in 1940 (Box 4, Folder 4). A good example of this is the appeal--raising the specter of Upton Sinclair--to John Paul Getty to support the Dockweiler run for governor, lest a radical successfully obtain office. The materials on John Dockweiler's use of the radio and newspaper in his political campaigns demonstrate the influence of the media in California politics. This series also has valuable information on the inveterate problem of corruption in Los Angeles city government and police. The materials on George Dockweiler's campaign for a Superior Court judgeship shed light on political alliances in Los Angeles (Box 8, Folder 4). Much of this series concerns Frederick Dockweiler's leadership in the campaign against public housing in Los Angeles; these materials, as those of John Dockweiler, evidence the influence of the media on Los Angeles and California politics. Names of note in this series include John Anson Ford, Fletcher Bowron, John Paul Getty, and Buron Fitts.

Series 3 Photographs circa 1870-1976

Physical Description: 3 archival document boxes; 3 oversize boxes

Scope and Content Note

This series consists of four subseries: (A) Individual Portraits, (B) Dockweiler Group Pictures, (C) Locations, (D) Miscellaneous Photographs, and (E) Photograph Albums. Individual Portraits consists of individual shots, or shots in which a Dockweiler is the main subject of the photograph. It has been subdivided into sub-subseries based on family members. It also includes such stalwarts of the Dockweiler law firm as chief secretary Jane C. Humphreys. A number of family portraits of the family of Isidore Dockweiler, at all stages of his family's life, are part of Dockweiler Group Pictures. There are photographs of locations such as the Dockweiler's home on West Adams Street, as well as miscellaneous or unidentified persons in photographs in Locations and Miscellaneous Photographs.
Two photograph albums complete this part of the collection. In Box 15ov is a valuable album of photographs of the Dockweiler family in and around Los Angeles before 1920, containing historically valuable photographs of such places as Ocean Park, San Diego during the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition, and Venice Beach in its infancy (1904-1905). The latter includes shots of the Venice Pier, the lagoon, and the Venice Bath House. Dating from the 1930s and the 1940s, the second album, bearing the embossed title "William and Mary Young" (Box 16ov), is of the social activities and vacations of William K. and Mary Dockweiler Young.
Specific activities in photographs are recorded in the entry in the box and folder list. Photographs are black and white, unless otherwise indicated. If a photograph has a date, then the entry in the box and folder list records this. Most photographs are only of interest to the family, but those from the late nineteenth century or from the turn of the century provide historical value, recording a Los Angeles long past.
