With the digitization of Carlisle Indian Industrial School information thanks to Dickinson College of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, a treasure trove of images is now available on the project’s website.

The college’s Community Studies Center (CSC) and its Archives and Special Collections Department put the project together in 2013 and since August of 2013 they have been sending teams of researchers to the National Archives to scan and digitize information relating to CIIS.

Here are just 12 images from the many pages available on the project’s website. View them all at CarlisleIndian.Dickinson.edu/Images.
