Myrtle Thomas Student File

Myrtle Thomas Student File

Student file of Myrtle Thomas, a member of the Chippewa Nation, who entered the school on October 6, 1908 and ultimately graduated in 1914, departing on June 4, 1914. The student did not attend the school continuously, but left and reentered. The file contains student information cards, applications for enrollment, a former student response postcard, outing evaluations, a returned student survey, a report after leaving, financial transactions, outing records, a progress/conduct card, and letters/correspondence.

The file indicates that Thomas attended the YMCA convention in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in 1913, was awarded an essay prize, lived in Shell Lake, Wisconsin in 1913 and 1914, and was an assistant seamstress and government employee at the Tulalip Indian Agency in Tulalip, Washington in 1914 and 1915.

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, Florence May Garlow. That document has now been included with the Florence May Garlow file: NARA_RG 75_Series 1327_box 85_3948.
