 The Reservation School Collection contains responses to surveys of selected 4th – 8th grade students at various Reservation schools during the late 1950’s and early 1960’s.  The surveys asked that students respond to four questions:  “Who Am I?”; “When I grow up I would like to be…”; “I like to do these things:”; and “I do not like to do these things.”  Some of the survey responses are accompanied by Survey Data Sheets, which provide more extensive personal information for selected students. None of the material tells who conducted the survey, nor does it indicate why the survey was conducted.  Due to the personal nature of the materials in this collection, it is restricted until 2033.
