Eva Caswell Student File

Student file of Eva Caswell, a member of the Chippewa Nation, who entered the school on December 6, 1913 and departed on June 6, 1916. A note in the fie says she re-enrolled on September 14, 1916 but no final departure date is given. The file contains student information cards, applications for enrollment, medical/physical records, certificates of promotion, letters/correspondence, an outing record, financial transactions, and an application for financial aid. Much of the file discusses various medical issues Caswell dealt with during her time at the school, including a tubercular condition, acute laryngitis, and swollen glands. The file indicates Caswell was intending to enroll at an Indian school in Riverside, California after the Carlisle Indian School closed in 1918.

Note: In this file the student is identified as Eva Caswell, Evangeline Caswell and Eva Susan Caswell.

Note: Students Benjamin F. Caswell, Eva Caswell and Louia/Charlotte Caswell were siblings and their father was former student Louis R. Caswell.
