Student file of James Porter, a member of the Nez Perce Nation, who entered the school in May 1882 and departed on September 18, 1883. The file contains a student information card, a trade/position record card, and a letter/correspondence. The file indicates that Porter was a gardener at the Santa Fe Indian School in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1914.
In school documentation James Porter is also known as James D. Porter.
Note: Although documents in this file list Porter as Ponca, other records dating from the time of his arrival at Carlisle in 1882 and his departure in 1883 make clear that he is Nez Perce, but that he had come from the Ponca Agency.
