This material includes correspondence concerning an incident between Superintendent Oscar Hiram Lipps and Doctor Walter Rendtorff about an operation on student Henry Tomau. Dr. Rendtorff desired to either sent Tomau to a Philadelphia hospital or request the help of Dr. Deaver from town for an appendectomy, and Superintendent Lipps refused. Dr. Rendtorff then requested an intervention from the Commissioner of Indian Affairs.
