These materials include correspondence regarding a question from Hattie Martin, of Haverford, Pennsylvania, on whether Indian students with black heritage were excluded from enrolling in the Carlisle Indian School. School and federal officials debated on how to respond. Carlisle Superintendent Moses Friedman argued that those students often experienced prejudice, and other schools offered similar opportunities for them. The official response to Martin stated that all students who qualified under the guidelines were eligible for enrollment.
