William Corbett Student File

Student file of William Corbett, a member of the Nez Perce Nation, who entered the school on September 24, 1902 and ultimately departed on March 14, 1909. The student did not attend the school continuously, but left and reentered. The file contains student information cards, a returned student survey, an application for enrollment, letters/correspondence, a trade/position record card, a progress/conduct card, a medical/physical record card, a former student response postcard, a news clipping, and a report after leaving.

The file indicates Corbett went to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with the band in 1908 and was working as a farmer in Kooskia, Idaho in 1910, 1912, and 1913, studying for the ministry in 1914, and was putting out a calendar titled "The Pipe of Peace" in Kooskia, Idaho in 1918.

Note: Corbett married fellow student Elizabeth La France (also known as Elizabeth or Lizzie Day).
