Carlisle Indian School Digitization Project Highlighted on the Front Page of the Navajo Times
The Archives and Special Collections department of Dickinson College partnered with the Community Studies and Mosaics to create a website that brings together and makes available the various photographs, letters, and administrative files pertaining to the more than 10,000 students who attended the Carlisle Indian Industrial School (CIIS) between 1879 and 1918. There is now a searchable database for those individuals who wish to search for more information on the CIIS and/or the students who attended the school.
