History[edit] Charles Fletcher Lummis was an anthropologist, historian, journalist, and photographer who created the Southwest Society, which was the western branch of the Archaeological Institute of America. He gained the support of city leaders, and with the financial backing of attorney Joseph Scott and opened the Southwest Museum in 1907. The museum moved from Downtown Los Angeles to its current location in Mt. Washington in 1914, and has been there ever since. The 1914 building was designed by architects Sumner P. Hunt and Silas Reese Burns. Later additions to the museum include the Caroline Boeing Poole Wing of Basketry (completed 1941), by architect Gordon B. Kaufmann, and the Braun Research Library (1971), by architect Glen E. Cook. Frederick Russell Burnham, the highly decorated military scout and father of the international scouting movement, was an early president.[1]


Current Status[edit] The building is currently being used for conservation work of the collection. One gallery is open to the public on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with events and exhibitions also taking place on other parts of the campus. Autry has been conserving and moving most of the collection to a new state-of-the-art home in Burbank.[2] Following years of controversy with the Friends of the Southwest Museum and other local community organizations, the Autry began a partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the City of Los Angeles to develop a long-term plate for the site. On January 22nd, 2015 the Southwest Museum was designated a National Treasure by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.[3][4]In January 2016, an exhibition of contemporary artwork opened in the building's tunnel entrance[5]
