About the Collection
The Dockweiler Family Papers document the Dockweiler family, which held a distinguished place in nineteenth and twentieth-century Los Angeles. Family members influenced city, state, and national politics, and were noted personages of Los Angeles society. The career of Isidore B. Dockweiler (1867-1947), the patriarch of the family, in law and national politics best exemplifies this influence. These images found in this digital collection document the significance of both the Dockweilers’ public and private lives.
