These materials include correspondence regarding requests from numerous employees for salary increases and on-campus housing provisions. During the 1914 Congressional Investigation, investigator Edward Linnen noted the need for salary increases for many employees, and for more on-campus housing to counter the high cost-of-living for employees residing in the town. The matter is taken up by many Carlisle employees, and Commissioner of Indian Affairs Cato Sells promises to address the question in person during an upcoming visit.
