The Camp Apache Agency was established in 1872 to administer the affairs on half of the White Mountain Reservation in Arizona. It was consolidated into the San Carlos Agency in 1876 when that agency assumed responsibility for the entire White Mountain Reservation.[1]

Milan Soule (acting) August 11, 1872, James Roberts (special) September 28, 1872 as agent July 13, 1874,and William E. Morford May 11, 1875 [2]

Records

Agencies and subagencies were created as administrative offices of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and its predecessors. Their purpose was (and is) to manage Indian affairs with the tribes, to enforce policies, and to assist in maintaining the peace. The names and location of these agencies may have changed, but their purpose remained basically the same. Many of the records of genealogical value (for the tribe and tribal members) were created by and maintained by the agencies.

Any records for this agency were likely consolidated into those for the San Carlos Apache Agency.
