Notes

Herbert Herman Fiedler was the head chauffeur of Mrs. Frances Ann Lutcher of Orange, Orange County, Texas. The yearly road trips spanned a time period from 1906 to 1922. The road trips included travels to Alaska, the west coast, midwest, New York, New England, Canada, western Europe, and Great Britain. The road conditions often were poor to practically non-existent and required considerable improvisation to allow for a successful journey. Mrs. Lutcher was a wealthy heiress to a major lumber business in Orange and enjoyed the greater outdoors and the appeal to travel to distant places.
