Sarah Walker [version 1], c.1890

Studio portrait of Sarah Walker. 

Note: In the Descriptive Statement of Pupils from Omaha and Winnebago Agency, September 19, 1890, a check mark appears next to the entry for Sarah Walker. Sarah Walker is the only student listed on this document who is not also listed in the admissions ledger, so it seems likely that, for whatever reason, Sarah Walker did not actually enroll at Carlisle.
