Students Posed on the School Grounds, 1901

Students Posed on the School Grounds, 1901

Male students posed standing and sitting on the lawn of the school grounds, with female students in the background. 

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.
