The Samuel Hinman Collection, available at the Center for Western Studies, covers three years of Hinman's career (1868-1870) and includes correspondence, reports, and a journal. Samuel Hinman (1839 – 1890) and his wife, Mary, established a mission for the Santee Indians at Redwood, Minnesota, and worked for the Indians until the 1862 uprising. Hinman continued to serve the Santee in prison at Ft. Snelling and followed them to Crow Creek, Dakota Territory. He then established the Santee Mission for the exiled Indians in their Nebraska home. Bishop Whipple received Hinman back into Minnesota in 1886, and Hinman served the Indians at Birch Coulee until his death on March 24, 1890. Note: small number incoming correspondence from 1867 is included.
