At last count 2168 letters, printed between 1881 and 1889, are indexed 

below by author.  While many are apparently signed by what Editor Otis called 

the "true name" of the writer, most bear a pseudonym or initials.  Numerous 

errors in the spelling of names undoubtedly exist, resulting from an error by 

the Times in editing or typesetting, poor quality of the microfilm, sloppy 

handwriting on the part of the researcher or a typing error when entering the 

data into the computer.  Inconsistent typing when entering the data accounts 

for an otherwise inexplicable use of case letters where a capital letter was 

called for, but the overwhelming task of correcting that error at this late 

date was not deemed worthwhile.  Where the Times has made an obvious error in 

spelling the author's name, that has been silently corrected here.  When an 

error by the Times is suspected, what is probably the correct name is inserted 

in [brackets.]  

    Some misspelling of names - and occasionally other errors - found in the 

two previous indexes have been corrected in this index.  "H. D. Barrows" 

mistakenly appears as "Burrows" at some point in those two indexes.  In self-

defense it ought to be noted that he was also referred to as "Burrows" in a 

scholarly historical journal article recounting his role in the founding of 

that publication's sponsoring society and as "Burrows" in the major 

encyclopedia of Los Angeles history.

     In many letters the signature consists only of what appears to be the 

initials of the author.  While the paper usually placed a period after each 

initial, those periods have been omitted here.  Sometimes an author would use a 

full name on one letter and only initials on another.  Labor historians looking 

for letters by trade union leader Arthur Vinette should look at both his 

surname and under the initials "AV."  Readers interested in the complete set of 

letters by Frederick M. Shaw should seek them out under Shaw and "FMS."  Where 

only initials were used at the close of the letter, they are placed in this 

index alphabetically according to the first initial. Thus, a letter by Arthur 

Vinette signed only AV is listed alphabetically under A, not V, and Shaw's 

letters [FMS] would be under F, not S.

    Some frequently used initials can be associated with specific names, 

although with the possibility of erroneous attribution.  HDB is Henry David 

Barrows; JHB = Jesse H. Butler; JGD = former governor John G. Downey; EAK = 

Elizabeth Kingsbury; MDL = Dorothea Lummis; FMS = Frederick M. Shaw; JCS = John 

C. Sherer.

    Where the author's name is assumed to be a legitimate proper name, the last 

name is placed first: Vinette, Arthur.  Whether or not Betsy Bobbett is an 

alias she is listed as Bobbett, Betsy.  Julius Caesar  and Henry Longfellow, 

however, are considered to be aliases and are listed under J and H 

respectively.  A. T. Torney may in fact have been a resident of Los Angeles, 

but for this index that name is listed under A and is considered to be a 

pseudonym.  While Editor Otis insisted on knowing the "true name" before 

printing a letter, it is likely that he was fooled on occasion.  Modern editors 

of the paper's letters column also insist on a genuine signature but 

experienced letter writers have found ways to circumvent that requirement.  No 

instance has been found, however, in which Otis found it necessary to report 

that a letter was not in fact from the author who signed it.

    In most cases letters by the same individual are listed in chronological 

order, but minor computing errors occurred that may disrupt that sequence.

    This index is arranged as the others, with the Author's column, in which 

the alphabetization occurs, positioned as the fourth column.

    With a population approaching 80,000 at the peak of the boom in 1887-88, it 

was not unusual for several individuals to have the same, or very similar, 

names.  J. Mills Davies [JMD] is not to be confused with John M. Davies.  

Whether all the letters signed "John Murray" were from the same person is 


    Readers who discover errors are urged, for the benefit of other scholars, 

to send corrections to the email address or mail them 

to the home address listed on the web page associated with this project.
