Contested Article Regarding Alleged Former Student

October 4-15, 1913

These materials include correspondence concerning an article about the arrest of alleged former student Sam Morris. The article, published by the Native American, the student newspaper of the Phoenix Indian School, notes that Morris was a Carlisle graduate and was arrested for forging a check. Carlisle's superintendent, Moses Friedman, wrote to the superintendent of Phoenix demanding a retraction, as the school had no record of any Sam Morris attending. Friedman also criticized Phoenix's school newspaper for criticizing another Indian school.
