The Images section features photographs, postcards, and different types of artwork, as well as reproductions of images that appeared in newspapers, magazines, and other publications. These images all reflect the Carlisle Indian School students, facilities, and staff. Images available here are drawn from files housed at the U. S. National Archives, from collections of Carlisle Indian School materials housed at various archival repositories, and from a variety of published sources. Visitors to this website are also invited to share copies of photographs from their own personal and family collections; please contact us if you have images you would like to contribute.
Studio portrait of Geneva Jamison wearing non-native clothing.
Note: Two students named Geneva Jamison attended Carlisle, both from the Seneca nation. This image is probably of the Geneva Jamison who arrived in 1898 and departed in 1901. She is sometimes known as Geneva B. Jamison and was 11 years old when she enrolled. Since the other Geneva Jamison arrived in 1895 and departed in 1898, a date has been assigned to this image that accomodates them both.
Format: Photographic Print, B&W
