George W. Bent Student File

George W. Bent Student File

Student file of George W. Bent, a member of the Cheyenne Nation, who entered the school on September 8, 1895, and departed on March 4, 1896.  The file contains a student information card, a position card, former student response postcards, a returned student survey, correspondence, newspaper clippings, and a report after leaving indicating that he was living in both South Dakota and Nebraska between 1910 and 1915, working as an Indian school disciplinarian, forest guard, and bankmaster.

Note: At the time of scanning at the U.S. National archives, a document in this student file seemed to relate to a different student, Alva Blanchard Christian. That document has now been included with the Alva Blanchard Christian file: NARA_Series 1327_box 6_folder 234.
