For the period to 1929, information gathered from annual reports, the Meriam report, Assistant Commissioner Meritt's recommendations, Secretary Wilbur's outline, and the Rhoads' memoranda is provided in relationship to health, education, welfare, community life, land, resource management, employment, duration of Federal supervision, and Bureau-Congressional relations. Also discussed are th Rhoads-Scattergood Administration (1929-33), The "New Deal" for the Indians (1933-45) in terms of acceptance and Congressional rejection, Commissioner Brophy's administration (1945-47), the termination controversy (1953-61), the 1961 Task Force Report, and Alaskan Native affairs.
