Biographical / Historical

This book contains information about a little known ministry of the Christian Brothers among Native Americans, particularly the Osage tribe in Oklahoma. The school was co-founded by St. Katherine Drexel in 1888 and was conducted initially by the Sisters of St. Francis (Glen Riddle, PA). The pioneer Christian Brothers of the St. Louis District assigned there were Brothers Lawrence James, Aubertine of Jesus, Arcadius Joseph, Immanuel, & Herbert Philip. There is a map on page 8. Appendix 4 has a prospectus of the school. A reminiscence based upon a personal visit to the location in 1967 is in appendix 5. A roster of all Brothers who served there is in appendix 6.
