Administrative InformationReturn to Top


Since there is very little material in this collection it has not been divided into series. However, all the material relating to the two tribes (Coeur d'Alene and Nez Perce) is together by tribe, the class material is together, and the files from Mr. Ridley's office are together and have been arranged in alphabetical order.

Since the material in this group has not been divided into series the contents of the box will be listed under the various categories into which it falls.
