Scope and Content

Loring Dumas Beckwith was born about 1872 in Burlington (now called Longmont), Colorado. He attended Brodhead (Wisconsin) High School and entered the University of Denver in 1897, graduating in 1902. He was editor and proprietor of several newspapers in Colorado and New Mexico before coming to California in 1913 where he became owner of the Santa Margarita Index and Our California Home, newspapers which championed the Atascadero Colony. Several years later he moved to Atascadero where he was News Editor of the Atascadero News. He moved to Stockton about 1920 and founded The Forum, a newspaper which advocated the economic philosophy of Henry George. About 1931 he founded No Taxes which also extolled the advantages of the single tax system. In addition, he wrote numerous pamphlets on the subject, lectured, and was active in the Henry George Foundation of America and other similar organizations.
Beckwith's papers were purchased from Doris Harris Autographs in 1969 with additional purchases from Holmes Book Company and Kenneth Jones in the same year. A few concern his career before coming to California and the Atascadero Colony but the bulk of the collection relates to his career as Editor of The Forum and No Taxes.
