Records, mainly 1947-1977, of two programs--the administration of Johnson-O'Malley funds to local school districts with Indian students (1947-1977) and the distribution of federal-state college scholarships (1956-1971)--that were administered by the office responsible for overseeing Native American education in Wisconsin. Annual reports of the office are available in the State Historical Society Library.
Included for the Johnson O'Malley program are minutes of state advisory and planning committees and local Indian education committees; correspondence of the consultant with the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council, and local educators and tribal members; audit reports; proposals and evaluations of basic education and special service programs and activities prepared by local school districts; and miscellaneous records of Indian student attendance. For the scholarship program the files include correspondence with applicants and school officials, worksheets, and detailed applicant information files.
