Whitehorse Baptist (Lee School)

 -  1947 -1960

Religious Entity: Baptist

Representatives of the Alaska-based Baptist Evangelization Society founded the Whitehorse Indian Baptist Mission day school in 1947. A student residence in an army-surplus building was added later that year. Indian Affairs provided funding for salaries and school supplies along with a per student payment. A 1956 Indian Affairs report found the residence “very unsatisfactory.” When the building was condemned in 1960, the federal government stopped funding the school, but it remained in operation until 1962.
