In honor of the people

Bishop Henry Benjamin Whipple's collections are the subject of a new web site, In honor of the People: Exploring American Indian culture in the Bishop Whipple collections.

Major sections of the site include
  • People
  • Places
  • Voices
  • Material culture
Bishop Whipple (1822-1901), the first Episcopal Bishop of Minnesota, was an ardent friend and supporter of American Indians.

Pages about the Bishop's second wife, Evangeline (Marrs) Whipple (1862-1930), are particularly noteworthy.

We hope you enjoy your visits to the site!

A section of the Whipple Website focuses on Bishop Whipple.
