Pacific University Trustees 1882 meeting minutes regarding Indian School student Peter Stanup

Title

Pacific University Trustees 1882 meeting minutes regarding Indian School student Peter Stanup

Description

Minutes taken at a meeting of the Pacific University Board of Trustees on June 6, 1882. As part of a discussion of how much might be spent on scholarships for tution, they noted, "Mr. Stanup, a Puyallup Indian for example, wishes to come next year, and others apply often, whom we would like to help if in our power. Is the amount, raised by the President as scholarship fund available?" Henry Stanup, who was enrolled at the Forest Grove Indian Training School from 1880-81, had written asking permission to enroll in Tualatin Academy, which was the college preparatory high school attached to Pacific University. Stanup was ultimately unable to attend the school due to health reasons. His letters to Professor Joseph J. Marsh about his wishes to attend and his health problems explain the outcome in more detail. It is unclear whether Stanup was ever offered a scholarship. Several other Indian School students did however enroll as students at the Academy.
