superintendent of the orphans home. A native of Ray, Ohio, and graduate of Brown University, Randall had been a professor of English and history at Baptist College, Rangoon, Burma, from 1897 to 1907. From 1908 to 1910 he taught at Leland University at New Orleans, before becoming president of Bacone College, known until 1910 as the Indian University. 6

Randall edited the Orphan until 1918. Under his editorship the content changed. News of both the orphans home and the college campus was published. He placed more emphasis on inspirational pieces and articles treating Christianity among the Indians. He occasionally published works by Indian writers and wrote editorials encouraging hard work, opportunity, and "proper" behavior. The publication was more clearly oriented toward children and young people. In April of 1912, Randall added a subtitle, "An Appeal for Indian Education," and took on a managing editor, W. A. Seward Sharp. In keeping with the subtitle, Randall placed more emphasis on education, but continued to publish articles about church organizations and leaders. After the November, 1914, issue, Randall changed the name of the publication to Indian Education, but the content changed little.

Randall was succeeded in 1918 by Benjamin Duval Weeks, formerly vice- president at Bacone, who became editor, with L. E. Worley as managing editor. 7 The content changed little except that news and articles concerning Indians in the war appeared in some issues. World War I caused the suspension of the monthly from October through December, 1918. It reappeared as a combined issue from January and February of 1919. How many more issues appeared is uncertain, but it ceased publication in 1919.
