Biographical NoteReturn to Top

The Dawes Act, adopted by Congress in 1887, authorized the President of the United States to survey Indian tribal land and divide the land into allotments for individual Indians. In Montana, the Crow Act of 1920 implemented provisions of the Dawes Act by authorizing the compilation of a "complete roll of the Crow Tribe" to determine the distribution of allotments. In 1923, in connection with this work, a series of township maps were created by special allotting agents John K. Rankin and Charles E. Roblin, working with draftsman L. C. Rennick. These men performed the work under the general supervision of Charles H. Asbury, the Bureau of Indian Affairs Superintendent of the Crow Reservation.
