Title: Edgar Dewdney, Indian Commissioner in the Transition Period of Indian Settlement, 1879-1884
Notes: An assessment of Dewdney's attempts to carry out his duties within the guidelines of "the strictest possible economy." Because of the extinction of the buffalo and the hunting economy based on them, Dewdney had the responsibility of persuading Indians to settle upon reserves and pursue agricultural activities. His other major responsibility was to report on the disposition and movement of American Sioux Indians in the North-West Territory.
