Charles Lummis Knighted By The King Of Spain


Charles Lummis was not only recognized nationally, but also internationally. In 1915, King Alfonso XIII of Spain acknowledged Lummis’ accomplishments on behalf of Spain by conferring upon him one of the highest gifts that may be given to a non-citizen by the Crown: Knight Commander, with the Star of the Royal Order of Isabel la Catolica. As a result of receiving this honor, he was officially knighted and recognized as Sr. Don Charles F. Lummis.
