Reflecting on Eight Years

Date of Post

It's hard to believe it's already been eight years since our first group of interns completed their summer work of scanning documents at the U.S. National Archives and then processing the files and posting the material to our website. It's also been four years since two of our team members spent two months compiling information about the Carlisle students who died while attending Carlisle in order to develop our Cemetery Information resource pages. As families continue their efforts to have their ancestors returned home from the Carlisle Indian School cemetery, and as Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland has announced an investigation into the Indian Boarding Schools and student mortality at those schools, our colleagues here at Dickinson College prepared a short video reflecting on the Digital Resource Center and our hope that it may continue to provide valuable information for families of Carlisle students as well as other researchers across the country and around the world.
