Newspaper clipping depicts 1905 graduating class

This newspaper clipping from the March 16, 1905 Pittsburgh Dispatch features the graduating class of the Carlisle Indian School. Noteworthy are the number of graduates from the so-called "Porto Rican" tribe. The clipping gives a graphic account of the effects of "civilization" on the subjects of the Carlisle experiment.
