These materials include correspondence regarding a complaint made by Volney J. Ellis, Superintendent of the St. Regis Indian Schools, that the Carlisle Indian School was rejecting all pupils from the St. Regis Reservation. In response, Ellis was instructed that New York State had made provisions to educate Indian children in schools near their homes. As a result, they were no longer eligible for enrollment at schools sponsored by the Federal Government.
