Description: Student records for Native American students of the St. Francis Mission School.
In 1972, St. Francis Mission transferred its holdings of high school transcripts of the former St. Francis High School to St. Francis Indian School. In 2018, St. Francis Indian School returned only a portion of those transcripts to St. Francis Mission, which in turn, transferred them to the Marquette University Special Collections and Archives, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Unless noted otherwise, the repository named above holds (or held) the records described and not the Marquette University Archives.
