Carlisle Indian School - Naomi Greensky collection

Carlisle Indian School - Naomi Greensky collection
Collection Inventory: 
Date Range: 

The Naomi Greensky Collection has been organized into two sections, Papers and Photographs. Most of the Papers can be categorized as ephemera and reflect extracurricular activities that Naomi participated in while at Carlisle. The papers include dance cards, holiday cards, a commencement program, and materials from Mercer Literary Society. There are also several calling cards or business cards from the Great Northern Railway and Glacier National Park. The Photographs include several postage-stamp sized images taken and developed at Carlisle Indian School’s Leupp Art Studio. The individuals pictured in the photographs are suspected to be students from the school, but most are unidentified. One young woman appears in six photographs – four as a young adult and two as a child – suggesting that she may be Naomi. A young man appears in three of the photographs, and it is likely that this young man is Naomi’s brother, Peter Greensky.
