Curatorial Comment
Inscription below photograph reads: "1961 Graduation Class. Alberni Indian Residential School. Back row – Benny Stewart. Left to right – Pauline Housty, Deanna Johnston, Glenda Gladstone."; These students would likely have graduated from integrated public school, but boarded at the Residential School. As early as 1934, high school students boarding at Alberni IRS had begun attending public school in Port Alberni. By 1966, students from grades 1 through 8 were taking their classes in public schools, and the next year, Alberni IRS officially became the Alberni Indian Student Residence.
