Edmond J. Mallet Collection

About this collection

The Edmond J. Mallet Collection is a unique group of photographs and papers from the late 1880s regarding life of American Indian children and adults who lived on Indian agencies and at missionary schools in Indian Territory. Tribes include Tulalip, Cheyenne, Arapahoe, Genoa, Yankton Sioux and Rosebud.  The materials are comprised of over 70 photographs and over 300 pages of documents.  These documents include correspondence, agency documents and American Indian employment records. These materials provide a unique description of life on the Agencies and in the schools.  These materials have been conserved and digitized by the Northeast Document Conservation Center through a LSTA grant awarded by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
 

 

Provenance

Edmond J. Mallet’s manuscript and photograph collection was purchased by the Union Saint-Jean-Baptiste d’Amérique (now Catholic Financial Life Insurance) in 1917 along with Mallet’s personal library. Catholic Financial Life (CFLI) gifted Mallet’s papers to the Emmanuel d’Alzon Library in December 2012. Major Mallet’s personal library had been on permanent loan with the d’Alzon Library since 2004, but with the transfer of Mallet’s personal papers, CFLI also gifted his book collection to the d'Alzon Library in December of 2012.  Assumption College enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the Union Saint-Jean-Baptiste. The USJB provided monies for the construction of the College's La Maison Française building in 1955, and their funds had an instrumental role in the creation of the College’s Institut Français.
