Leadership--A Story about William George Demmert, Jr.
Christensen, Rosemary A.
Journal of American Indian Education, v50 n1 p32-48 2011
This article describes 40 years of interactive friendship and work between William Demmert, Jr. and Rosemary Christensen, who met during the First Convocation of American Indian Scholars in March 1970 at Princeton University and then in the fall of that same year as they both arrived in Cambridge, Massachusetts as graduate students in the first year of the American Indian program at Harvard University. It traces their work together through a review of selected documents that Demmert sent to Christensen that became the basis for the William Demmert Jr. Archives of the American Indian Learning Resource Center Library at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
