Description

This letter, dated October 13, 1949, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Floyd Montclair of Elbowoods, North Dakota, member of the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation and vice president of the National American Indian Defense Association, Inc., makes reference to an enclosed report from E. Barton Greenwood of the US Bureau of Indian Affairs in reply to Langer's inquiry on Montclair's behalf regarding the possibility of E. O. Morrow's being appointed Superintendent of the Fort Berthold Indian Agency.

In the enclosed letter, dated October 7, Greenwood explains that Reginald W. Quinn, Chief Clerk at the Forth Berthold Agency, has been designated Acting Superintendent while Superintendent Ben Reifel is on a nine-month leave of absence to attend Harvard University, and will remain so "until such time as we determine whether it will be necessary to appoint a superintendent to the position pending Mr. Reifel's return."

Greenwood goes on to write that, in the event it is decided to fill Reifel's position, Morrow will receive "every consideration along with other qualified employees in the Indian Service."
