The United States Indian School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania lasted from 1879 to 1918. It was founded by Captain Richard Henry Pratt and was one of the first off-reservation schools for Indians. It was a part of the effort to assimilate and integrate Indians into "American society." Significant abuse and trauma occurred in this promotion of public education.
The collection consists of manuscripts of papers written by M. L. Howell (probably in the 1960s) concerning Native American history. Also includes American Indian legends by students at the United States Indian School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, compiled by Howell.
Arranged by record type.
