These materials include correspondence and legal documents regarding the request of James Cook to have his son Isaac Cook returned home from the Carlisle Indian School. Superintendent Moses Friedman initially sought to deny the request based on a claim that Isaac Cook desired to remain at the school. Friedman was overruled by the Office of Indian Affairs, as the State of New York was willing to enroll Cook in public school.
