Wilson Thompson Student File

Student file of Wilson Thompson, a member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee, who entered the school around October 23, 1906.  No departure date is given for the student, although it can be assumed by the file that he departed the school before 1910.  The file contains an application for enrollment, correspondence, a returned student survey, former student response postcards, and a report after leaving indicating that Thompson was living in North Carolina between 1910 and 1913, working as a farmer.

In school documentation Wilson Thompson is also known as William Thompson, Jeffress William Thompson, Jeffress Thompson, and Wilson.

Note: Although this file shows an arrival date of September 4, the admissions ledger and his information card suggest that he actually arrived on October 23.
