Much of the content in the late 1890s related to the Connecticut Mission Home in Idaho. Most of the information appeared in the form of letters from Miss Amelia J. Frost, teacher and matron at the home, to Mrs. Sara Thomson Kinney, president of the association. These letters discussed such matters as curriculum, living conditions, the hardships of the work, and personal news of the students.
Occasionally, articles dealt with more general matters of Indian affairs. Some typical topics were assimilation (replete with "before" and "after" pictures of the assimilated), Indian Service personnel, individual Indian profiles, missionaries, Indian scouts, and statistics relating to Indians.
In 1898 and 1899, Miss Katharine Burbank was editor. Her business manager was Mrs. Frederick C. Jones. In charge of the Young People's Department was Miss Marie Ives, who later edited The Indian's Friend* published by the Women's National Indian Association. Also writing for the Bulletin was Helen Rosalie Foote , who had formerly helped edit the Friend.
The Indian Bulletin was published at least until April, 1901. 2 The issue of that date was apparently the first since early 1899.
