Fort Mojave Industrial School correspondence and a blueprint design of the Fort Mojave Pump Station, Washington (D.C.), 1891-1893



1891 to 1893


From the Fort Mojave Indian School Records (MS-00034). The records of the Fort Mohave Industrial School consist of two bound books of correspondence and cover the years 1890-1893. The first book contains typed letters received by the school’s superintendent Samuel W. McCowan from Commissioner of Indian Affairs Thomas J. Morgan or Assistant Commissioner R.V. Belt. While the binding of the first book is in poor condition, all communications are readable and coherent. These letters contain information related to the school’s finances and administrative operations as well as issues of policy implementation and matters related to fact finding. Each letter in this book has an identification number in the top left-hand corner that was recorded with the Department of Indian Affairs and can thus be used as a cross-referencing tool with the records of that department. Financial information includes: detailed authorization letters for purchasing livestock, grains, farming implements, seeds, fruit trees, clothing, blank
