Dr. Theresa Milk's HASKELL INSTITUTE: 19th CENTURY STORIES OF SACRIFICE AND SURVIVAL presents American Indian/Alaskan Native student stories from early days of Haskell, a federal boarding school founded in 1884. Milk takes a balanced look at the ordeals and successes of Native students as they struggled within a military, assimilationist educational envir0nment. Dr. Milk's new research-based on letters, newspaper articles, photographs, and government documents-emphasizes individual stories. This book draws on other researchers to give the overall background of Native boarding schools, but additionally adds texture of day-to-day life as experienced by individuals. Milk recovers lost histories. She uncovers the close ties between Haskell and the University of Kansas-Lawrence community. Early supervisors of Haskell included KU chancellor James Marvin and Lawrence resident Charles Robinson, Kansas state governor and abolitionist leader.
