Scope and Contents

Consists of a scrapbook entitled "Annual Report of the Girls' Advisors of Haskell Institute, 1935-1936."

The material covers the student council, girls clubs, girls dorms and gardens, gym classes, dances, campus queens, letters to parents, work programs, religious and social activities, and pageantry as a means of educating the public about Indian culture and history. Included are 94 gelatin silver photographs of students (some in ceremonial costume) and Haskell Institute scenes.
