These materials contain correspondence regarding the suggestion of Superintendent Lipps to start a reformatory school for the Indian Service. Lipps states that students should not be sent to Carlisle when they have access to similar education near their home or when they have an unsatisfactory disciplinary record. Lipps also states that Carlisle is often seen as a reform school and an alternative to prison for those on western reservations.
