Title

Letter to C. C. Painter on land and conditions at the Forest Grove Indian School

Description

A letter dated March 5, 1884 regarding land and conditions at the Forest Grove Indian School from George H. Atkinson, Secretary of the Board of Trustees of Pacific University, to Professor C. C. (Charles Cornelius) Painter. Painter was an advocate for Native rights and was the Corresponding Secretary for the American Missionary Association's National Education Committee. Both Atkinson and Painter were ordained ministers in the Congregationalist Church. In this letter, Atkinson responds to questions regarding the title to the land on which the Indian School buildings sat. This land belonged to Pacific University but would be deeded, Atkinson said, to the Government for the purposes of running the school. Atkinson closes the letter with his hopes that Painter will help the school to secure more funding.
