Request for information about CIIS musicians

Hello everyone, My name is Vincent Veerbeek and I am a PhD student at the University of Helsinki in Finland. My dissertation research is about the history of marching band music in government boarding schools for young Native Americans including Carlisle. To get a better sense of the way the marching bandsshaped school life and student experiences, I am interested to hear stories that have been passed down about what it was like to be in the band, the school band’s performances, its role in everyday life, and so on. In addition, I am curious about the stories of students who went on to have careers as band leaders in the Indian school service. Among the Carlisle graduates who led school bands later in life are James and Dennison Wheelock, Richard Barrington, Robert DePoe, Angus Lookaround, Alfred Venne, and Pablo Herrera. These are the ones I know of, but there were undoubtedly others. If any of you have stories related to (marching band) music at Carlisle that you would be willing to share with me, feel free to send me an email at vincent.veerbeek@helsinki.fi . Warm regards, Vincent

"A Forgotten Archive, or You Have to be Lucky: The Long-Lost Narratives of the Oneida Ethnological Project

This details the account by Dr. Herbert Lewis, of his findings at University of Wisconsin, Madison, and the process of publishing an amazing WPA era project that include informants who had been former Carlisle Indian Industrial School students. This bears further discussion which hopefully can continue here.
