James Shemamy Student File

James Shemamy Student File

Student file of James Shemamy, a member of the Caddo Nation, who entered the school on September 13, 1908 and ultimately departed on September 30, 1914. The student did not attend the school continuously, but left and reentered. The file contains student information cards, applications for enrollment, trade/position record cards, a medical/physical record, outing records, an outing evaluation, a progress/conduct card, a returned student survey, financial transactions, and letters/correspondence.

The file indicates Shemamy worked for E. A. Lane and Son in Carlisle Pennsylvania on the outing program in 1912, was living in Binger, Oklahoma in 1914 and 1915, and was an enlisted member of the United States Army 343rd Machine Gun Battalion, 90th Division, stationed at Camp Travis, Texas in 1917.

Note: In this file the student is referred to by the given names James and Jimmie, and the given names Shemamy, Shemayme, Schemayme, and Shemaymee.

Note: A document of James P. Shemamy's was originally found in the folder of another student; Clarence R. Ross, NARA_RG 75_Series 1327_box 86_folder 3966.

Note: At the time of scanning at the U.S. National Archives, several documents in this student file seemed to relate to two different students, Charles Williams and George Miller. Those documents have now been included with their respective files: Charles Williams, NARA_RG 75_Series 1327_box 65_folder 3269; and George Miller, NARA_RG 75_Series 1327_box 86_folder 3967.
