It would be difficult to find a more interesting, versatile and colorful character than Charles Fletcher Lummis. His life was full of thrilling adventures and experiences with all different types of humanity. His great purpose was to bring the glories of the West to the smug East. "See America First" was one of his slogans. He believed that many people wished to see only the scenery and monuments of Europe, yet in their own country, there lay greater charms and a culture that was as ancient as the culture of the Greeks. One of the things said about him that fits his life perfectly was, "he was many lived and myriad minded".
