This collection consists of the papers gathered by Frederic E. Lockley, Jr.: his own papers, those of his father, papers relating to the Pacific Monthly magazine, and manuscripts that Lockley collected pertaining to Oregon history.
Fred Lockley's father, Frederic E. Lockley, Sr. (1824-1905), had been born in England and came to the United States in 1848. Though his ambition was to be a writer, necessity forced him into a variety of jobs until he found employment on Frank Leslie's Illustrated News, then as proof-reader on Horace Greeley's Tribune, and later with the printing firm of Johnson, Fry & Co. Lockley had taken out naturalization papers in 1859 and, with the coming of the Civil War, enlisted with the Union forces in 1862. After the war he joined the staff of the Cleveland Leader and in 1869 moved to Leavenworth, Kansas, on the Evening Bulletin. There he attended an Indian Council at Ocmulgee (Oklahoma) and became interested in Indian problems. His letters and articles were published in the New York World, Lippincott's Magazine, the Overland and many other periodicals. He became editor of the Salt Lake City Tribune in 1872 and as a non-Mormon often took a stand against the Church hierarchy. After a brief time with the San Francisco Tribune, he went to Butte, Montana, to edit the Inter-Mountain, moved to Arkansas City, Kansas, to edit the Traveler, then in 1888 settled in Salem, Oregon, to edit the Capital Journal. After 1899 he spent the remainder of his life in Missoula, Montana, until he was stricken with paralysis during a visit to his son in Salem and died in 1905.
Frederic E. Lockley, Jr. (1871-1958) first gained prominence as assistant editor and manager of the Pacific Monthly, the Portland based literary magazine that aspired to be the West Coast counterpart of the Atlantic Monthly. Lockley was born in Leavenworth, Kansas, on March 19, 1871 and moved with his family to the various towns in the West where his father was employed. During his boyhood he served on the newspapers edited by his father--as carrier-boy on the Butte Inter-Mountain, printer's devil on the Arkansas City Traveler, and later, as compositor, pressman, reporter, and circulation manager on the Capital Journal at Salem, and still later, as field agent, collector and solicitor on the Oregon Statesman and Pacific Homestead (in Salem). He was also circulation manager and part owner of the East Oregonian of Pendleton, Oregon. In 1907 (some sources say 1905) he became associated with the Pacific Monthly. Lockley wrote voluminously, not only for the Pacific Monthly, but for the American Magazine, Youth's Companion, and various other Eastern magazines. In 1911 Lockley joined the staff of the Portland newspaper, the Oregon Journal, as columnist and feature writer. He entered the service during the first World War and served with the Y.M.C.A. in front line work at Amiens and Abbeville on the British Front. Upon his return, he continued with the Oregon Journal as well as with his writing of books on Oregon history. During these years he also conducted a book business specializing in Western books and manuscripts, which he continued until his death in 1958.
His son, Laurence Campbell Lockley (1899-1969), many of whose papers are also in the collection, taught English at U.C.L.S. then changed to the field of marketing research. He became market analyst for such firms as Du Pont and Curtis Publishing Company before becoming the dean of the School of Commerce at U.S.C. and professor of Business Administration at the University of Santa Clara

"Fred Lockley (1871-1958) was a newspaper columnist, a rare book dealer, and the author of books on Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. He was born March 19, 1871, in Leavenworth, Kansas, to Elizabeth Metcalf Campbell and Frederic Lockley, a Civil War veteran and newspaper editor. In 1888, he headed to Salem, Oregon, to work as a compositor on the Capital Journal. Lockley attended Oregon Agricultural College in Corvallis in 1889-1890 and graduated from Willamette University with a degree in education in 1895. Two years later, he married Hope Gans; they had three children, only one of whom survived childhood.
"After laboring for a year on a farm in Polk County, Lockley took a job at the Salem Statesman . As field editor for the weekly magazine, Pacific Homestead, he rode on horseback all over Oregon, usually staying overnight at the homes of people he met. Interested in their histories, he began writing about pioneers and pioneer life.
"Lockley continued to move from job to job, working as an assistant to a government topographer, mapping what is now Glacier National Park, and as a mail carrier and clerk in the Salem post office. In 1900, he mined gold in Nome, helped establish the first free mail delivery in Alaska, and worked for the Nome Nugget . In 1902, at Hope's urging, the family moved to Pendleton, and he became the circulation manager and part-owner of the East Oregonian . Four years later, he sold his interest in the paper, and the family moved to Portland.
"From 1905 to 1910, Lockley was general manager of The Pacific Monthly magazine. He left the magazine in 1911 to join the editorial staff of the Oregon Journal and to write a column, "Impressions and Observations of a Journal Man." In 1917-1918, he served as a war correspondent in France for the Oregon Journal, the New York Herald, and the London Globe. Hope Lockley died in 1928, and Fred married Laura Simpson in 1930.
"Lockley wrote many books-including Oregon Folks, Oregon's Yesterdays, Oregon Trail Blazers, and Oregon Outdoors, in addition to articles and stories for the American Magazine, Collier's, McClure's, Sunset, and other magazines.
"After Lockley's death on October 15, 1958, Pendleton native Mike Helm worked with the hundreds of interviews and documents that Lockley had collected from Oregon pioneers in the 1920s and 1930s. Conversations with Pioneer Women (1981) and Conversations with Pioneer Men (1981, 1996) are a tribute to Lockley's dedication to Oregon history and a significant resource on early Oregon settlers."
