Winter Digitization Trip to the National Archives

Date of Post

Several members of the project team recently returned from a week-long digitization trip to the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

Project Co-Director Jim Gerencser was joined by Digital Projects Manager Don Sailer and project consultant Blair Williams to scan student records as well as administrative documents related to the operation of the Carlisle Indian School. We also explored more general records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, looking to better understand the boarding school system that Carlisle was a part of. The team always looks forward to making new discoveries through these digitization efforts.
