Charles Fletcher Lummis was born in Lynn, Massachusetts. He was an American journalist and Indian rights and historic preservation activist; he is also known as a historian, photographer, ethnographer, archaeologist, poet and librarian. His best poem from the work, "My Cigarette", highlighted one of his life's obsessions, tobacco. In 1884, Lummis was working for a newspaper in Cincinnati when he was offered a job with the Los Angeles Times. In 1892, his writings during the trip were published as a book, A Tramp Across the Continent. In 1892, Lummis released another book, Some Strange Corners of Our Country. Over his 11 years as editor, Lummis wrote more than 500 pieces for the magazine himself, as well as a popular monthly commentary called "In the Lion's Den". Lummis continued his fight against the U.S. Indian policy bureau and called on his classmate President Teddy Roosevelt to help change their manner of operating.
