Abstract:

The collection consists primarily of correspondence related to the professional activities of John Dustin Bicknell, who was a partner in several Los Angeles law firms. In addition, the collection also includes 51 bound volumes (19 letter books, account books, journals, etc.), six rolled documents and maps, and two photographs.

The collection includes letters from individuals who wished to buy or sell property or had a claim against someone concerning their land. As an attorney for the Southern Pacific Railroad Company, Bicknell received correspondence from Collis Potter Huntington and Henry Edwards Huntington asking for his advice on right-of-ways and other matters related to railroads and interurban lines.

In addition to correspondence from the Huntingtons and several of his partners including James A. Gibson, Walter J. Trask, and Stephen Mallory White, the collection also contains business letters from several prominent individuals including Reginaldo Francisco Del Valle, Jackson Alpheus Graves, Isaias William Hellman, William Franklin Herrin, George Wharton James, Thaddeus Sobieski Coulincourt Lowe, Henry Harrison Markham, Henry William O'Melveny, William Mulholland, Joseph Deighn Redding, Frederick Hastings Rindge, William Starke Rosecrans, Charles Hansen Toll, Moses Hazeltine Sherman, James Slauson, Jonathan Sayre Slauson, Harriet Williams Russell Strong and Shirley C. Ward.

A few of the letters are from various relatives and friends of Bicknell including Warren Newton Dusenberry, superintendent of Brigham Young University, from whom he received seven letters.

The collection also contains approximately 650 letters (1883-1902) from various individuals who work or supervise the Frazier Mine near Gorman, California that Bicknell jointly owned. These detailed letters describe not only the activities of the mine but also the living conditions and the problems of receiving mail, supplies and equipment.
