Sherman Institute (Indian School), 1919 & 1947

Sherman Institute, 1947

 Orvel Allen was my husband’s grandfather.

Sherman Institute, 1947

And Mamie, graduating in the class of 1919, was Orvel’s mother. 

Mamie Lamberson

This seems like the distant past, but my guess is that each of us knows someone today (whether we realize it or not)  whose family, whose life, was altered by this history.
