Chemawa Cemetery Map edited transcript

Description

A typed and corrected version of the hand-drawn 1960 plot map of the graves in the Chemawa Indian School Cemetery. This cemetery is located on the Chemawa campus north of Salem, Oregon. Most of the burials on this map are of students who died in custody of the school between the 1880s to the 1930s. Some of the burials are of former students, school employees or their children. Those who were buried after 1935 appear not to have been students at the time of their death.

This version of the map was created by Eva Guggemos (Pacific University Archivist) based on the 1960 Chemawa Cemetery Map. Many of the verifications of names, corrections and death dates were supplied by Chemawa historian SuAnn Reddick. The 1960 map was created and held by the Chemawa Indian School, which is administered by the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs.
