Ten Pawnee students, c. 1891

Studio portrait of five male students (all wearing school uniforms) and five female students. Previous cataloging interprets the caption as identifying the students as Pawnee, and naming three of them as Rose Howell, Phoebe Howell, and Ann Townsend. Rose and Phoebe were both Pawnee students. There is no student named Ann Townsend so this may actually be Sam Townsend, referring to Pawnee student Samuel Townsend.

Thirteen male Osage students [version 1], 1891

Studio photo of thirteen male students. They are identified in the caption of the Cumberland County Historical Society copy of this image as being "Osage group, 1891."

A researcher at the Cumberland County Historical Society identified the students in their copy of this image as, top row, left to right: Claude Smith, Frank Penn, Amos Osage, Daniel McDougan; middle row, left to right: Elias Stanton, Harry Kophay, Richard Rusk, Ben Harrison, Fred Penn; bottom row, left to right: David Copperfield, George Connor, Amos Hamilton, Edgar McCarthy.

There is no Claude Smith in the school records from the Osage nation. Either this is Sioux student Claude Smith or is it Osage student Chester Smith.
