This letter dated July 7, 1955 from Three Affiliated Tribes Tribal Chairman Martin Cross to United States (US) Senator William Langer encloses a copy of a resolution (presumably from the Three Affiliated Tribes Business Council) regarding the open Superintendent position. This is likely a reference to the resignation of Ralph M. Shane who was superintendent of the Fort Berthold Agency from 1953 to 1955. Cross says that he thinks Frank Gordon will make a good superintendent. Cross indicates that copies of the resolution have also been sent to the Area Director, W.O. Roberts. The resolution is not enclosed with this document.
