Documents relating to the Episcopal Church: Conditions of admission and survey of schools
In 1827, Episcopal minister Richard Cadle and his wife Sarah opened a missionary school intended primarily for Indians in Green Bay. During the winter of 1828, land was obtained from the government for the school and a building was erected the following summer. In these selections, the conditions of admission to the school are explained along with a supplementary report on the school after a decade of operation. These records show the intentions and effect of missionary educators on the Menonminee and Oneida in the 1830's.
