Geiger was an American Friar Minor and Roman Catholic priest, who was a major historian of the Spanish missions in California founded by the Franciscan Order. His family moved to Los Angeles in 1913, where he graduated from Loyola High School in 1919. Geiger wrote extensively on various aspects of the mission system, and is best known for his biography of Junipero Serra. See: Wikipedia. REFERENCE: Zamorano 80, No. 59, 1st ed., Mexico City, 1787.
