Male Students Working in the Printing Department, 1901

Five male students posted working with printing presses. 

In 1901 the Bureau of Indian Affairs contracted with the photographer Frances Benjamin Johnston to document the school at Carlisle for an exhibit at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York. Johnston visited the school in the spring of that year and took at least one hundred photographs. Johnston donated her personal papers, including 103 prints of the photographs taken at Carlisle, to the Library of Congress.  

A copy of this print is available for download from the Library of Congress website: https://www.loc.gov/item/98503032/.  

This image appears with the caption PRESS DEPARTMENT  in The Indian Industrial School, Carlisle, Pa.: 23rd Year (Carlisle, PA: The School, 1902) [p. 26].
