Curatorial Comment
This promotional publication was Principal George Raley's personal copy. It dates from the year that the new Coqualeetza building was completed. Images show some of the rooms inside the main building, as well as the barn and principal's residence. Descriptions reveal the educational philosophy, cultural assumptions and attitudes of the principal. A timeline of the School and list of First World War soldiers associated with the School provide for a succinct information resource. Telling is the pictorial tribute to the men behind the new school and residence, including Duncan Campbell Scott, then Deputy Superintendent of Indian Affairs.
