Dr. Walter Lindley Scrapbooks

Special Collections of The Libraries of the Claremont Colleges are pleased to announce that the first series of the Dr. Walter Lindley Scrapbooks is available online in the Claremont Colleges Digital Library, CCDL.

The Lindley Scrapbooks were assembled by Dr. Walter Lindley (1852–1922), early resident of Los Angeles and prominent physician, and are a part of the Francis Haynes Lindley Memorial Collection housed in Special Collections, Honnold/Mudd Library for The Claremont Colleges. The Lindley Scrapbooks consist of 33 scrapbooks covering the period 1861 to 1921 and document through clippings, correspondence, and ephemeral materials, Dr. Lindley’s professional and civic achievements. The first series to be made available through the CCDL covers his candidacy for mayor of Los Angeles. Among the other series to be digitized are the formation of the California Hospital, the development of the Whittier State School for Boys, the Los Angeles Public Library board, and the founding of a tuberculosis sanitarium in Idyllwild.

Digitization of this collection is made possible by a grant from The John Randolph Haynes and Dora Haynes Foundation.

The Lindley Scrapbooks also are available for study in person in Special Collections, Honnold/Mudd Library during our Reading Room hours and by appointment.
