June 19 - July 18, 1913
Carlisle Indian School Superintendent Moses Friedman requests to reinstate an evening study hour two nights a week in which students will do homework in the academic classrooms. In years past, it was four nights a week in the classroom, but last year it changed to four nights a week in the dormitories, which Friedman doesn't find to be as effective because teachers are not in the dormitories, and the lighting is worse.
Acting Commissioner of Indian Affairs F. H. Abbott approves Friedman's request. Later, Friedman informs Abbott that he is instating the evening study hour for four nights a week.
