In light of a plan submitted by Carlisle Indian School Physician Dr. Shoemaker, Commissioner of Indian Affairs Francis E. Leupp directs Superintendent Moses Friedman to prepare an itemized list of supplies needed to build a tuberculosis camp. Friedman sends Leupp a blueprint of a camp. (The blueprint is attached in this file)
Chief of the Education Division J. H. Dortch relays quotes from a letter from Dr. Joseph A. Murphy to Dr. Elsie E. Newton in which he outlines plans to build "sleeping porches" on the east and south sides of the school hospital. Murphy notes that he discussed the plan with Friedman and Shoemaker. (Murphy's letter is included this file)
Friedman sends an estimate for constructing a tuberculosis camp for six patients that would cost $682.60 in materials. The Assistant Secretary of the Interior approves Friedman to spend $675.54. Friedman replies that he would actually prefer to build the sleeping porches on the hospital instead of an entirely separate tuberculosis camp and informs the Commissioner of Indian Affairs that he will begin preparing new plans and estimates for the porches.
